Liverpool are bracing themselves for renewed interest in striker Luis Suarez in January – with Real Madrid preparing a player-plus-cash deal involving Karim Benzema.

Benzema is thought to be high on the New Year shortlists of Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.

And despite rumours of a £42million bid from an unnamed Premier League club for the French hitman, Real are set to use him as a makeweight in a stunning move for Suarez.

Reports suggest that the Spanish giants are plotting a January bid for the Reds star by offering £20m plus Benzema.

Arsenal failed with their pursuit of Suarez this summer, and despite starring for Liverpool in recent weeks he is still keen on a switch to Madrid.

Real hope a package worth £40m including a ready-made-replacement in Benzema could convince the Merseyside outfit to sell.

Benzema is struggling at the Bernabeu this season having failed to score for Carlo Ancelotti’s side in seven games and is taking flak from the club’s fans.

The 25-year-old is surplus to requirements in the Spanish capital and could welcome a move to England.
