Arsenal’s attempts to sign Bayern Munich centre-back Medhi Benatia are set to be frustrated as two Italian clubs join the race to sign the Morocco international.
Wenger is reportedly keeping an eye on Benatia’s situation at Bayern and the French man is thought to be keen on the 29-year-old.
According to RMC, Juventus and AS Roma are interested in the defender and would rival Arsenal for his signature.
Fresh reports have emerged suggesting Arsenal are ready to make a bid for the talented defender.
Benatia’s future has been plunged into uncertainty due to Bayern’s attempt to sign Matt Hummels and the arrival of a new centre back at the Alianz Arena could force Benatia out of the club.
Benatia has failed to settle in Germany and could be a reason why he is eyeing a switch back to the Serie A where he has played before instead of the Premier League.
