Juventus In Pole Position For Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema – Report

Karim Benzema is still coveted by Juventus, who are the side first in line to sign the Real Madrid attacker, according to a Boxing Day report from the Corriere dello Sport.

Sections of the Italian press believe that it is inevitable that Edin Dzeko will sign for the Bianconeri this winter, though the Corriere suggests that the Bosnian will prove too expensive for the Serie A outfit.

Benzema has long been coveted in Turin since his formative days with Olympique Lyonnais, and the Old Lady continue to track the France striker, who has shown only flashes of his potential with Real Madrid.

Under Jose Mourinho, ‘Benz’ has struggled to make an impression in many of los Blancos’ biggest matches, though hat-tricks against Auxerre and Levante in recent weeks have seen his profile around the Bernabeu rise.

Despite this apparent improvement, the 23-year-old still has big questions to answer regarding his future in Spain, with speculation mounting as the January transfer window approaching.
