Boost for Arsenal in £40m deal as Man United star reportedly asks for exit
Arsenal appear to have received a major boost in their pursuit of Manchester United striker Anthony Martial.
Arsene Wenger is still in the market for a new goalscorer as the future of star forward Alexis Sanchez continues to look uncertain.
As a result, Manchester United striker Anthony Martial has been deemed as one of the Arsenal manager’s transfer targets.
And according to the Gambling Times, the 21-year-old is now set to inform the Red Devils about his desire to leave the club.
Martial endured a frustrating season last term, after being limited to a regular place on the bench despite finishing his first season at Old Trafford as the team’s top scorer.
Reports from last weekend suggested that the Gunners were considering an offer of around £40 million for the former AS Monaco star.
The last time Mourinho did any sort of transfer business with Arsenal was in 2015 when Petr Cech moved to the Emirates stadium.
