Arsenal ready to beat Man United to wing star

Arsenal are plotting a serious summer move to beat Manchester United to Bayer Leverkusen’s Karim Bellarabi, according to reports from the Daily Star.

The Gunners could be in for another big transfer window, with Arsene Wenger set to be backed after spending big to land Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez over the course of the past two years.

And it’s believed that Bellarabi has caught the Frenchman’s eye.

Wenger is said to have been particularly impressed by the 24-year-old’s Champions League showings, but the winger has been in fine form in all competitions notching 11 goals while laying on five assists.

United are also interested in Bellarabi, as are Wolfsburg, but Arsenal may look to out-bid them with a substantial offer.

The wide-man, who was eligible to represent Morocco at international level, has already made his debut for the reigning world champions.
