Karim Benzema snapped a selfie with former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Luka Modric amid reports linking the Real Madrid striker with a move to Arsenal.

The France international has been touted as a potential target for the north London side following speculation Madrid manager Rafael Benitez is willing to sell the striker.

Arsene Wenger is reportedly keen to bolster his attacking options with Olivier Giroud and injury-prone Danny Welbeck amounting to his only recognised strikers.

Benzema can call on Modric for information about the perks of life in north London after the Croatia international spent four seasons at White Hart Lane before a £30m move to Madrid in 2012.

And the Arsenal target snapped a selfie with Modric and Colombia international James Rodriguez which he posted on his Instagram page.

Benzema wrote on the photo-sharing app: “Madrid.”

The former Lyon striker scored 15 goals in 29 La Liga appearances for Los Blancos last season.
