Spurs and Chelsea target Benatia

Udinese defender Mehdi Benatia continues to attract interest from around Italy and Europe, including Tottenham and Chelsea.

According to TalkSport, both London clubs are preparing for a bidding war over the summer to get their hands on the centre-back.

Benatia had already been close to Anzhi in January, while he has been linked with the likes of Milan and Fiorentina too.

This week Udinese came out to deny there was already a deal with Napoli.

The Moroccan international has been at the Stadio Friuli since joining from Clermont in 2010 and turns 26 next week.
