Juventus ready to sanction Benatia move to Arsenal?

Benatia could join Arsenal in Ramsey swap

Serie A holders Juventus are reportedly prepared to sanction the sale of Medhi Benatia to Arsenal this month, provided they can acquire the signature of Aaron Ramsey on a Bosman.

The Moroccan international has endured a difficult season with the Bianconeri where he has managed just five appearances through the first half of the campaign.

Due to this, he has been touted for a potential move elsewhere and according to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Gunners could end up being his destination before the end of the month.

Arsenal are currently not in a position to discuss a cash deal for the centre-back but they still have the possibility of getting the transfer done, should they agree to a swap agreement involving Ramsey.

Ramsey has just six months remaining on his existing deal with the north London giants and reports have indicated that he is free to pursue a new club with a contract renewal unlikely to occur.
