Borussia Monchengladbach left-back Ramy Bensebaini continues to attract interest from Europe’s top clubs following his impressive form this season.
The 27-year-old has netted five goals in all competitions, including a brace against Koln in the Bundesliga last weekend.
The Foals have been locked in talks to extend the Algerian’s contract for months but to little effect. His current deal expires next summer.
Serie A giants Inter Milan and Juventus have identified Bensebaini as a top target on a free transfer to reinforce the left-back position.
The former Rennes star has now claimed that his future remains open, although he is happy with Gladbach at the moment.
The Algerian told Kicker: “Everything is open. I’m a Borussia Mönchengladbach player – I’m happy, and that’s all that counts for me right now. I’ll think about the future when the time is right. Other things have priority now.
“It’s not important to me whether there’s more sun shining somewhere than elsewhere, I’m looking for a challenge and I want to prove myself at an ever higher level.
“Of course, many factors play a certain role for the overall package, but in the end these must be the most important sporting perspective.”
Inter are seeking a top-class left wing-back, with Robin Gosens linked with an exit. The German international has fallen down the pecking order, with Federico Dimarco ahead of him.
Juventus also want to add a new left-back as they are unimpressed with Alex Sandro’s performances.
AS Roma and West Ham United are also keeping tabs on Bensebaini’s situation at Borussia Park.
Gladbach are also working on a new deal for Marcus Thuram, who has been in great form this term – netting five goals and two assists in nine appearances.
The French forward’s current contract expires in 2023, and Bayern Munich are one of the clubs interested in signing him.
