ARSENAL are the bookies’ favourites to sign Manchester United defender Phil Jones in the summer.
The England international has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford following a series of poor performances and Manchester United could cash in with his contract expiring next year.
Arsene Wenger is expected to strengthen his leaky defence at the end of the season and Coral have Jones at evens to head to the Emirates Stadium.
“Arsenal have been heavily backed in the market for Phil Jones’ next club and it looks as though if he does move on then The Gunners are in pole position to snap him up,” Coral spokesman Harry Aitkenhead said.
It was claimed that Jones and team-mate Paul Pogba had a bust-up with Jose Mourinho in the wake of the 1-0 defeat at Newcastle earlier this month.
Mourinho reportedly blamed the duo for the loss but United chiefs swiftly denied the reports.
A club source told the Daily Star: “Reports of a bust-up in the dressing room following the Newcastle match are total rubbish.”
