Man United and Arsenal set to battle for £12million defender

Arsenal have joined Manchester United in the race for Hull City defender Andrew Robertson, Express reports.

The left-back has impressed at the start of this season after joining in the summer from Dundee United for only £2.85million, but Hull manager Steven Bruce suggested Robertson could leave during the winter transfer window.

Bruce recently told the Sunday People: “There has already been one or two with phone calls asking ‘to keep me informed’. That’s always the first stage.

“I had it with Palacios when I was at Wigan and then Valencia when he went off to Man Utd. And if this kid keeps performing the way he is then it might become inevitable.

“I spoke to Gordon about him in the summer. He threw him in against Nigeria for his first cap. He took to it like a duck to water, and he has done exactly the same when offered the challenge with us.”

This has alerted both Man United and the Gunners, as the duo are both keen on a defender with their current injury woes.

The Tigers will however only allow Robertson to leave if interested parties are willing to pay £12million for his services.
