The Gunners are reportedly interested in bolstering their back-line with the signing of the 31-year-old this summer

Arsenal have been linked with a move for Juventus defender Medhi Benatia this summer.

Le10Sport claims that newly-appointed Arsenal manager Unai Emery could bring the Morocco international to the Emirates Stadium after the 2018 Fifa World Cup.

Following the retirement of Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny's injury crisis, Benatia has been tipped as the potential candidate to strengthen the Gunners' defence.

The centre-back joined the Old Lady from Bayern Munich on a permanent transfer last summer after impressing during his temporary stay in the 2016-17 campaign.

The 31-year-old has also attracted interest from Marseille as Juventus look to replace their ageing defensive trio including Giorgio Chiellini and Andrea Barzagli this summer.
