Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern were excited earlier this week when they were linked to a serial winner and their hopes of sealing his signature have received a boost today.
TalkSport quotes the agent of Bayern Munich defender Mehdi Benatia as stating the Moroccan will decide upon his future this summer, after speculation about his involvement in the squad increased this week.
Rumours linking Borussia Dortmund’s Mats Hummels with a move across the Bundesliga have raised questions as to where Benatia will fit in, with Juventus also pushing for the player’s signature if he becomes available.
Arsenal have received a boost in their push for the 29-year-old defender, as his agent said there’s nothing in the links to Juventus but the player’s future will be decided. Moussa Sissoko said:
“There’s nothing with Juventus. At the end of the season we’ll have a meeting with Bayern and assess what the club and Medhi want to do.”
Our landlord feels the experienced defender would be a solid addition to Arsenal’s back-line and he’s urged the Gunners to push for the player’s signature.
Arsenal fans, would Benatia come into your defensive line? Let us know in the comments below!
