Udinese defender Benatia would only move to big club

Reported Premier League target Medhi Benatia says he would only leave Udinese for a top European club.

The centre back has been linked with a host of top clubs across Europe, including Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham in the Premier League.

Benatia said: "I am loving my time in Italy. The league is a very good one and to be honest an important Italian team will always be my first choice unless a huge English, Spanish or German club come for me.

"The Italian league is a top championship with top clubs who are very attractive as well, so if I have an offer from a big club here I will listen to that club."
