Potential consequences: Medhi Benatia to Arsenal

Arsenal are continuing to raise expectations as Unai Emery has done a magnificent job in turning around their fortunes so quickly.

Despite losing their winning streak, Arsenal remain unbeaten and look good enough to challenge anyone in the league right now.

There has been improvements all over the pitch yet the former PSG boss is rumoured to be eyeing more, with TuttoMercatoWeb reporting that Arsenal are keen on signing Juventus defender Medhi Benatia.

The 31-year-old has featured in just four Serie A games this season and isn’t happy with sitting on the bench game after game.

Whilst under contract with Juventus until 2020, Benatia could find a move to Arsenal to be an exciting one and one that could allow him to recapture his very best form.

What could this move mean…

Mustafi Dropped

The German defender has never quite reached his best ability at the Emirates and after some dodgy performances this season, 31-year-old Benatia could be a more reliable option for Arsenal to turn to.

Whilst Arsenal have been more solid at the back this season, there is still believe that their backline could be improved and swapping out Mustafi for Benatia is a decision that could benefit Arsenal.

Unai Emery delighted

The praise for Unai Emery has been brilliant and rightly so. A manager that many weren’t all too convinced on when appointed, has turned out to be the man that’s brought the life back into Arsenal football club.

Good transfers inbound can only help him and Medhi Benatia is a centre-back full of quality and experience that Arsenal could be better because of.
