Germany international Benedikt Howedes held talks with Arsenal, Leicester and Roma before sealing a 'jackpot' move to Juventus, the defender's agent has confirmed.

The 29-year-old signed for the Italian champions on a season-long loan after being stripped of the captaincy at Schalke by new boss Domenico Tedesco.

According to Howedes' agent Volker Struth, the World Cup winner had been lined up by Arsenal as a potential replacement for compatriot Shkodran Mustafi.

But Mustafi's mooted move to Inter Milan failed to materialise, leaving Howedes to settle on his favoured destination.

Wenger considering switch to back four

  Wenger considering switch to back four Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is considering a switch back to a defensive four ahead of their trip to Bournemouth. Wenger’s side take on Bournemouth at The Vitality as they look to bounce back from two losses in-a-row. Liverpool and Stoke were both able to take three points against Arsenal, as The Gunners conceded five goals in the process. According to The Telegraph, this has prompted Wenger to consider moving away from a back three. Arsenal moved to a back three in April, which gave them initial success – winning nine out of ten matches. However, their poor start to this season has made Wenger think twice about what he will go with against Bournemouth this weekend. The report says that Arsenal have been working on a back three and a back four in training. They claim that even the players are unsure as to what Wenger will go with on Saturday.

"We held talks with Roma, Leicester and Arsenal because we heard that Inter wanted Mustafi," Struth told Sport Bild.

"[But] it was soon clear that if he [left Schalke], 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."

Howedes' departure from Schalke ended a 16-year stint at the Bundesliga club, where he progressed through the youth ranks.

Juve have the option to sign the 44-time international on a permanent basis for €13 million, a fee they will be required to pay if he makes a minimum of 25 appearances throughout the season.
