Arsenal are set to steal another star from Manchester United with the Metro claiming French ace Anthony Martial is open to a move to the Emirates in the summer after growing “increasingly unhappy under Jose Mourinho”.
The French youngster who finally cemented his place in Mourinho’s starting lineup this season has seen his role reduce since the arrival of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal and has not featured in recent times having also dropped behind Marcus Rashford in the pecking order.
The Gunners saw Henrikh Mhkitaryan join them in the deal that took Alexis Sanchez to Old Trafford in January and the Armenian has immensely impressed so far but they will be looking to get one over the Manchester club by signing Anthony Martial.
The Gunners face stiff competition for his signature, with the likes of Juventus, Paris Saint Germain, Chelsea and Tottenham also monitoring the France international’s situation.
However Martial is said to prefer to stay in the Premier League and feels he’ll get more playing time at Arsenal, a preference which will only work well for the Gunners in the battle for his signature.
Whether Arsenal will move for him remains to be seen, with a number of options in wide positions already at the club, and Ozil playing more on the flanks these days adding to those options.
