Arsenal are close to signing 6 ft 2 in African centre-back
Arsenal desperate to sign Juventus defender Medhi Benatia and set to battle with Man United and Milan for the player. London club have problems in the back-line as Rob Holding have an injury, Laurent Koscielny already 33-year-old and their replacement is necessary. Morocco international is the best choice in this situation as he also wants to get regular game time and ready to change the working place.
Emery will do everything to add him during this winter transfer window. Red Devils and Rossoneri also interested to sign him and there will be a real battle for the footballer. His price could increase and become much more. Benatia joined the Bianconeri from Bayern Munich in 2017 with a £15m deal. He is one of the best centre-backs in Serie A and an important figure for the club.
In this season, Medhi played 6 matches and did nothing important for the club. This is a terrible result and he can improve his consequences if he gets a regular place in starting line-up. Moroccan defender is contracted with the Old Lady until 2020 and his release clause is around £20m. He is a regular member of the national team and also played in the 2018 Mundial which is already a big success for the footballer.
