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.
