Man United encouraged by £58m in chase for Arsenal target

Manchester United are eyeing Lille winger Sofiane Boufal, according to French news outlet Le10 Sport.

The rousing success of Anthony Martial since his £36m move to Old Trafford this summer has reportedly prompted their interest.

Martial, who scored a deft chip in the loss to Sunderland today, has thoroughly impressed since an expensive transfer from Monaco.

Though the Red Devils are yet to act on their interest for the 22-year old winger, the manner in which their French striker has adapted to life is said to have encouraged them.

The tricky Moroccan winger has notched six goals for Lille this season and has emerged as one of the hottest talents in Ligue 1.

Arsenal and Manchester City are also understood to have scouted the former Angers man in recent times, such is his form.

He’s drawn comparisons to Chelsea winger Eden Hazard, who also developed as a winger while on the books at Lille.
