Arsenal are being linked with Manchester United left back Luke Shaw.
Shaw has struggled at Man Utd since joining them for over £30m in 2015 and it appears his club has now given up on him.
A report in the Daily Cannon claim United are prepared to sell the defender and in order to hasten his departure, they have dropped their asking price from £27m to £20m.
Arsenal are believed to be monitoring Shaw’s situation and might be boosted by this recent development.
However, it is Newcastle who are currently showing the most serious interest in the defender and it is to encourage the Magpies that Man Utd have dropped £7m in their valuation.
It is surprising, although not entirely surprising that Arsenal are being linked with sure.
Obviously we do need a new left back, as Monreal has been moved to central defense to compensate for his lack of pace and ageing, leaving Sead Kolasinac as our only leftback, but we’ve had enough problem with injury prone players.
Wilshere’s future is under threat because of poor injury record while Debuchy has been frozen out of the first team because he can’t stay fit. So it’s going to be silly of us to move for a player who doesn’t have the best injury records.
I don’t see Shaw moving to Arsenal. What the defender needs is a move to a smaller club where he can play regularly in order to resurrect his career. A move to Arsenal in January or anytime soon won’t favor any of the parties.
