Arsenal have reportedly shown interest in signing Juventus defender and Morocco captain Medhi Benatia.

The Morocco International is tied to the Old Lady until 2020 and the Serie A giants could accept to sell their defender for a fee in the region of €20/25 million, according to Le10 Sport as cited by Calciomercato.

Benatia is also wanted by Marseille and the player has recently refused to rule out the possibility of leaving Juventus in the summer.

Reports from Italy suggest there seems to be tension between Benatia and Juve (not a huge amount of tension but they don't seem to have the same relationship).

Juve haven't put him on the transfer market but it seems like they have been working on finding a replacement for him just in case he does leave sources have told Calciomercato.
