Juve zero in on Benzema

Juventus sent scouts to view Karim Benzema at Wembley and are focusing on him as the replacement for injured Amauri.

The Real Madrid benchwarmer scored in France's 2-1 international friendly victory against England on Wednesday night.

There were reportedly Bianconeri scouts in the stands in London to report on Benzema's progress.

Juve need a new striker after Amauri was ruled out for six weeks by a knee injury.

While other options include Diego Forlan and Maxi Lopez, it is widely believed Benzema is the prime target.

He would be available for around €15m, though it is also possible Real Madrid would agree to loan him out.
