European heavyweights Juventus are reportedly ready to let Morocco international Medhi Benatia leave the Bianconeri after falling out of favour.

According to reports in Italy from website Calciomercato.com, the Old Lady are prepared to let both Andrea Barzagli and Benatia seek pastures new.

Both defenders have struggled for game time this campaign following the return of Leonardo Bonucci, who re-signed for the club from AC Milan just a year after leavfing.

Arsenal have been heavily connected with Benatia ahead of the January transfer market.

The Gunners were touted as a possible destination for the Morrocan star over the summer, but he opted to stay at the Turin-based giants and fight for his place.

Following the form of both Giorgio Chiellini and Bonucci, Massimo Allegri is facing a battle to keep all of his centre-backs happy while juggling regular playing time, with Daniele Rugani also linked with a transfer away from the Serie A champions.

It is yet to be seen if Bianconeri will let Benatia leave in January or the summer, with both Barzagli and Rugani also likely to attract interest.
