German international defender Benedikt Howedes had talks with Arsenal before joining Juventus on loan, according to his agent.

Howedes left Schalke for Italy on a one-year loan deal after being stripped of the captaincy by new coach Domenico Tedesco.

He held talks with Roma, Leicester and Arsenal before eventually joining the Serie A champions, for whom he is yet to make his debut.

Agent Volker Struth told Sport Bild: “When this new situation came up, we straight way contacted [Juve sporting director Fabio] Paratici. And we of course also contacted other clubs.

“We held talks with Roma, Leicester City and Arsenal because we were heard that Inter [Milan] wanted [Shkodran] Mustafi.

“It was soon clear that if he makes the move, it would be Turin. That was Benni’s favourite from the very beginning.

“With all due respect to Schalke, even if things had gone super there, you want to join a club like Juve when you get the chance. Juventus are the jackpot.”
