Arsenal Linked With Shock Move for £16m Manchester United StarPublished June 19, 2016
Arsenal are tracking Manchester United star Daley Blind according to the Sunday Mirror.
Arsene Wenger is apparently a fan of the versatile Dutch international and news that Jose Mourinho is ready to allow the £16m rated star leave Old Trafford.
Blind was most commonly used in a central defensive role last term but can also operate in a defensive midfield spot as well as at full-back and Wenger has always been a fan of players who can ply their trade in multiple positions.
Mourinho is said to be ready to offload a number of the squad he has inherited from Louis van Gaal, with the likes of Juan Mata and Memphis Depay also playing for their Manchester United futures.
Blind is comfortable on the ball and a hugely experienced talent who could offer Wenger a fresh option in a number of slots.
Arsene Wenger has already brought in Swiss midfield general Granit Xhaka from Borussia Monchengladbach and would do well to bring in further additions to help his side’s push to end a lengthy Premier League title drought.
