Arsenal monitor Juventus' Medhi Benatia
Medhi Benatia has seen his game time drop drastically at Juventus, having made just 5 appearances in all competitions so far this season. Further, the Moroccan faces stiff competition for a place in the starting eleven, from the other defenders - Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini, Andrea Barzagli and Daniele Rugani.
The 31-year-old is understood to be unhappy with the situation, and is reportedly open to a move away from the Serie A champions in January.
According to reports from The Daily Star, Premier League side, Arsenal, are reportedly planning a January move for the defender. The report claims that the Gunners have already made the first contact with Juventus over a potential move.
Serie A's AC Milan are also believed to be monitoring the situation with their own fair share of interest in Benatia being revealed.
Despite manager Massimiliano Allegri claiming that Benatia remains an important part of the Juventus side, Benatia has entered the final two years in his current contract, and will be available for a reasonable price, should either of the aforementioned clubs decide to move for him.
