Di Marzio: Genoa interested in Empoli's Bennacer, Arsenal can profit in 2 ways
- The Algerian left the Gunners in the summer of 2017.
- Arsenal have inserted 2 clauses in his current deal: a buy-back and a sell-on clause.
- Genoa are set to appoint Empoli's manager and the 21-year-old is likely to follow suit.
If the Algerian decides to move this window, Arsenal will be heavily involved for two reasons.
First of all, the Gunners could decide to activate their buy-back clause by matching any other offer accepted by Empoli.
Second, if Arsenal choose not to bring the midfielder back to the Emirates, they will receive 30% of the transfer fee.
Empoli's manager Aurelio Andreazzoli is set to move to Genoa and Bennacer is likely to follow in his footsteps.
This season the 21-year-old made 38 appearances, assisting four goals.
Would you bring Bennacer back to the club or invest the 30% in the squad?
