Arsenal are reportedly monitoring the situation with Manchester United defender Eric Bailly as they look to hook him away from the Old Trafford.
It is no longer news that the Ivory Coast international has yet to settle well in the Jose Mourinho’s team which forced the Portuguese to look other direction for selection.
Having joined the Old Trafford club for a fee of £30m from Spanish club Villareal in the summer of 2016 this season has been the worst for him which makes a move away from the club possible.
The Manchester United side are believed to be losing patience and might have decided to let him go with Arsenal and AC Milan scrambling for his signature.
However, one of the things Arsenal must do to be able to win the race is to prepare a juicy offer that will lure United into accepting an offer for the player.
Also, the North London side must also show a level of seriousness in their bid for the defender to be able to convince the Red Devils of their intention to have him.
Meanwhile, suggestions are that United will not be willing to sell Bailly to the Gunners so as not to end up empowering their league rivals.
At the moment, Bailly is having a tough time in his career and will require good motivation and more playing time to be able to return back to good form.
