Arsenal are looking out to sign Moroccan defender Mehdi Benatia from Bayern Munich. The Defender will be moving out of the Bundesliga Giants if Mats Hummels from Borussia Dortmund moves to Bayern Munich.
The player has not been able to make an impression at Bayern Munich and is thus unhappy with the potential move of Mats Hummels whose arrival will further push him lower in the pecking order for the first team.
While Arsenal are looking to sign him, the London club will be facing strong competition from Roma for the player’s signature. Roma is set to battle it out with Arsenal if they have to.
“I would certainly do it, everyone knows that Rome is a special place for me.So many people have remained in my heart.”- Medhi Benatia
The Moroccan player moved to Bayern Munich from Roma in 2014 at £20.6m, thus being a former club Roma have an advantage in signing the player as even Benatia has agreed that if he does get a chance to move to Roma he will.
