Revealed: Majority of Arsenal fans want club to sign Marcus Rashford this summer

Manchester United attacker Marcus Rashford scored a brilliant goal and impressed generally in England’s 2-0 friendly win against Costa Rica at Elland Road last week, and his display didn’t go unnoticed by Arsenal fans on Twitter, who urged their club to sign the attacker, rated at £58.5m by Transfermarkt.

While the 20-year-old could be a key player for his country at the Russia World Cup this summer, his future is far from certain at Old Trafford following a tough campaign under Jose Mourinho.

Even though he started the 2017/18 campaign as something of a regular and got a fair number of goals, he found himself behind Romelu Lukaku for the centre-forward spot and then fell down the pecking order on the left when Alexis Sanchez joined during the January transfer window.

Meanwhile, the Gunners, whose supporters have urged them to sign a 6ft 3in beast following a major development, may well be looking for a pacy forward this summer having lacked some speed in wide areas following the departures of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott over the course of the last 12 months, and Rashford could be the answer even though Shkodran Mustafi had him in his pocket during the two sides’ 1-1 draw at Old Trafford in 2016.

We asked Arsenal fans to vote on our poll to see whether they want their club to sign the explosive attacker, and a majority 61% of them said they would.

While the Emirates Stadium faithful are supposedly keen on a deal, persuading United to sell a promising player to one of their direct rivals would be a huge challenge, as well his likely price tag probably being beyond their reach.
