ARSENAL should swap Aaron Ramsey for Manchester United star Eric Bailly in January, according to a renowned fan.
Starsport understands the Gunners are battling bitter rivals Tottenham for the United centre-back – who has become increasingly disillusioned with life under Jose Mourinho.
Ramsey, meanwhile, has attracted interest from the Red Devils after contract talks with the Gunners collapsed.
Liverpool are also keen on the Welshman, according to the Evening Standard.
Arsenal fan Mr. DT – a regular on popular fan show AFTV – has come up with a solution.
“Apparently Man Utd and Liverpool will be preparing bids in January for Aaron Ramsey,” he said on the latest episode of Ultimate Football Fan.
“If Arsenal are going to get rid of Ramsey, I wonder whether we would try and put in a sneaky swap deal for Eric Bailly.
“A player we want and need and swapping it with a player we don’t want.
“We’ve done it before with Alexis Sanchez and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
“Maybe Mourinho will do that again and maybe there’s something we can get done there.”
Hundreds of viewers have seen the clip since it was posted to YouTube.
“Let’s give them [Shkodran] Mustafi for Bailly,” one fan wrote.
Another joked: “Why would United sell their best players to Arsenal? It works the other way round.”
And a third said: “Not a chance Arsenal are getting Bailly – he’s a beast.”
