And according to Calciomercato, Arsenal had the option to match Milan's bid via a clause in Bennacer's contract but the Premier League club - then managed by Unai Emery - turned down the opportunity as the offer was too large.
The report says the Gunners chiefs are frustrated with that lack of activity as the 23-year-old is now at the top of his game and has played an integral role in Milan's rise to the summit of Serie A this season.
