Arsenal join Man Utd interest in Juventus defender Benatia

Arsenal are reviving their summer interest in unsettled Juventus defender Medhi Benatia.

Just this week, the Morocco international declared he could be forced to quit Juve in January over a lack of playing opportunities.

TMW says Benatia's admission has reignited interest from Arsenal, which tried for the defender last summer, along with AC Milan.

Manchester United are also interested, reported La Stampa this week.

Benatia said earlier this week, "I know that with five central defenders of high quality, it's hard to find a place.

"It's not nice to play from time to time, I would like to be on the field at least once a week because otherwise I have no continuity and I cannot give the best of myself.

"I am available and I do not want to leave. In January, we will see where I am and if (coach Massimiliano) Allegri still wants me."
