SAD News: Wenger’s Centre-Back Favorite Snub Arsenal For Manchester United

With the amount of players linked to Arsenal, we are not sure which of the reports to believe as there seem to be mischief in the media.

According to the Metro, Arsenal have made enquiries over the availability of Portugal international and Southampton defender Jose Fonte, who is also on the radar of Manchester United.

Fonte has made 267 appearances for Southampton since making his debut back in 2010 but the 32-year-old is now being linked with a move elsewhere in the Premier League.

Despite Arsenal’s keen interest in signing the player, Fonte wants a move to Old Trafford, reports ESPN.

Arsenal are keen on bolstering their defense after injuries to Per Mertesacker and Gabriel Paulista.

The Gunners defensive frailty was exposed last Sunday after Liverpool thumped them at the Emirates but Fonte is somewhat too old to make any impact in the squad.

However, his price tag and experience could be the main factor why Wenger is interested.
