Arsenal: Defender deal no go

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is looking to bolster his defence and it would appear that the Moroccan international is high on his list of transfer targets.


Reports have claimed that the Gunners have already failed with one offer in the region of £35.5million as the transfer window fast approaches, and have been told not to bother making a new one.


The 30-year-old lost his place in the Juve first team to Daniele Rugani after picking up an ankle injury, but since returning to fitness, has been a regular in Max Allegri’s side.


The Old Lady have not conceded a goal since his return to the starting eleven, hence Juve’s insistence the player will not be sold for any price next month.


Arsenal are keen to add to their defence after the 3-3 draw against Liverpool again highlighted frailties in their backline, but Benatia appears to be out of reach.
