Reus recently signed a new deal until 2019, but has consistently been linked with a move away as many try to exploit his desire to compete at the highest level.
Should he arrive at the Bernabeu, then serious doubts will be cast over Benzema’s future with Real Madrid no strangers to selling a top stars each summer.
The likes of Mesut Ozil, Gonzalo Higuain, and Angel Di Maria have all been shipped out in recent years, and Benzema could be next on the list.

Following on from reports in Spain claiming that Benzema is yet to rule out a move to Arsenal, a deal to bring the Frenchman to the capital seems to be gathering pace (via El Confidencial).
The magnitude of his potential arrival shouldn’t be underestimated. Benzema would simply propel us into genuine title contenders next season.
