Juventus have placed a valuation on reported Arsenal target Mehdi Benatia, according to sources in Italy.

The 31-year-old centre-back is supposedly a target of the Gunner and AC Milan, with a move in January set to occur.

Benatia made a total of 37 appearances for the Turin club last season but since the return of Leonardo Bonucci from AC Milan last summer, the Morocco international has featured just six times and has dropped down the pecking order.

Italian paper Tuttosport now claim that Juventus are willing to let the former Bayern Munich defender leave in the upcoming winter transfer window and an £18million offer could be enough to sign him.

Arsenal continue to have defensive problems despite scoring goal and could be an area Unai Emery looks to improve this January. However, Milan are believed to be most interested in Benatia as they experience defensive difficulties of their own this season.
