Arsenal ‘considering shock £34m transfer to re-sign Ismael Bennacer from AC Milan five years after Gunners exit’

ARSENAL are reportedly weighing up a £34million offer to bring AC Milan midfielder Ismael Bennacer back to the Emirates.

The 24-year-old featured once for the Gunners first team during the 2015-16 season, before being sold to Italian side Empoli in 2017.

His dazzling displays saw him earn a move to Milan two years later, with the Algeria international since becoming a key member for the Rossoneri.

In three years for the Serie A giants, Bennacer has featured in 105 games in all competitions.

The ex-Tours loanee played in 40 games for Stefano Pioli’s side last season as he helped Milan win their first Scudetto title since 2011.

And according to Calciomercatoweb, Mikel Arteta is now eyeing up a possible swoop for his former team-mate.

It has been said that the Gunners could turn their interest into a formal approach.

A £34m bid could be in the works with Arteta keen to bring in another central midfielder.

Milan would be reluctant to part ways with the player having seen Franck Kessie depart to join Barcelona on a free transfer.

But should they receive a £34 offer, Milan would consider selling the French-born ace.


It has previously been said how Arsenal chiefs were left furious at their decision to sell Bennacer five years ago.

As well as Bennacer, Leicester’s Youri Tielemans remains a top target for Arsenal.

SunSport exclusively revealed earlier this week how the North Londoners are set to make a £30m bid for the Belgium international.

Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is also on Arteta’s radar with the Serbian having just one year left on his contract.

But it remains to be seen whether Arsenal will match Lazio’s £55m asking price.
