Reports from Italy claim that Mehdi Benatia, who has appeared on Arsenal and Manchester United’s radar, is not happy with his situation at Juventus, as he has not started all the games as he thought he would.
That was already known, he has made it clear himself.
Signed from Bayern Munich on a €17 million deal back in 2017, the Morocco international had been a regular starter in his debut season in Turin.
But now, with the return of Leonardo Bonucci to the Old Lady, he has been mostly kept on the bench.
That is why he could soon leave, and three clubs are already working to know the conditions of a possible deal, and it is believed that AC Milan are monitoring the centre-back’s situation along with Premier League duo.
It is claimed that Juventus’ evaluation is that Mehdi Benatia is worth at least €15 million, and that is what will feed through to Arsenal, who are said to have ‘made first contacts’ for the signing.
It remains to be seen if the Gunners will make the move for the 31-year-old while the club can search for younger options.
