Arsenal are believed to be interested in signing Manchester United forward Anthony Martial with reports claiming the Gunners have enquired about the player’s availability.
With star forward Alexis Sanchez set to depart the Emirates in one of the next two windows coupled with the difficulty in trying to finalize a deal for Thomas Lemar last summer, Wenger is understood to be monitoring a few top talents around Europe capable of replacing the Chilean.
The Express via Daily Cannon claim that the Gunners have approached United over the French international’s availability, and that Martial is frustrated by the fact he’s only made one league start for the Red Devils since the start of the season.
The 21-year-old striker is understood to be worried as to why he is currently not in the first team despite his assured performances in his substitute appearances off the bench.
For a player who intends to make the vastly talented French squad for the World next summer, his concern is very much understandable.
The Frenchman suffered a little dip in form last year but looks reborn this season. Following his arrival from Monaco two years ago as a teenager, Martial immediately took the Premier League in his wake and finished as the Red Devils top scorer.
Personal problems off the pitch meant he struggled to replicate such high standards last season, the player however seems back to his best with clinical performances this season.
With Wenger’s long history of recruiting very talented compatriots, his interest in the player comes with no surprise, United are however understandably reluctant to let Martial leave, especially to a direct rival.
