Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema is keen to hear from Arsenal in January.

The Daily Mail says sources in Spain suggest the striker is ready for a new challenge away from Real and is warming to the idea of a move to England.

The asking price is thought to be £27.5million for Benzema who has played regularly under Carlo Ancelotti this season and scored in Saturday's 5-1 win against Real Sociedad.

He would demand a salary of £150,000 a week.
