According to what has been reported by Tuttosport, AC Milan are nearing a deal for Juventus defender Mehdi Benatia. Benatia has been linked as a long-time target for AC Milan, as well as reportedly Premier League side Arsenal and Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund – the interest of both these clubs stemming from the summer.

Leonardo is preparing an offer for Benatia, to bring him to Milan, and will likely use the track between the clubs created in the Higuain-Bonucci-Caldara deal that took place in the summer – with Milan’s purchase of Benatia possibly giving them a discount on a permanent deal for Gonzalo Higuain in the summer.
