Benatia-Ramsey swap rejected

Arsenal were prepared to hand Aaron Ramsey over to Juventus now in exchange for Medhi Benatia, but the Bianconeri rejected it.

It is widely reported that Ramsey has already agreed terms to join Juve at the end of the season as a free agent, once his contract has expired.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Arsenal would only have let Ramsey leave early if Juve included defender Benatia as part of the exchange.

Juventus block Benatia exit

Milan, Arsenal and Schalke 04 have made offers for Medhi Benatia, but Juventus refuse to release the centre-back in January.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the 31-year-old Morocco international is more than happy to consider moving on, as he is frustrated at the lack of regular playing time.

However, Juventus have no intention of letting him leave mid-season.

Benatia has been given just six competitive appearances this term and his contract is due to expire in June 2020, so a summer exit is more than likely.
