Piers Morgan begs Arsenal to sign Ashley Young

Macheda, Rooney, Nani, Young

Arsenal fans Piers Morgan is hoping Arsenal sign a Manchester United player who is not Wayne Rooney.

Perhaps it is the air of panic around some Arsenal fans at present, or at least one - That he has been reduced to begging for Ashley Young to join.

Celebrity Gooner Piers Morgan was moaning about Arsenal's transfer policy last night on Twitter, and ended his evening pleading bemusingly to sign the  Manchester United man.

Here's what he originally had to say, admitting to feeling quite 'mugged off' by the club he supports:

Perhaps it was just a symptom of that unhappy feeling, but when one of his sons mentioned spotting Ashley Young, Piers made a plea for Arsenal to move for the winger, probably out of desperation more than anything else.

Arsenal do need a left-winger, but moving for Young is not a move which would likely please fans. The fact Manchester United would likely cash in on the injury-prone wide man as opposed to standing firm on Rooney should surely say it all.

Whether serious or not, his short Tweet was a message that in his mind, things are getting quite desperate around the Emirates in the hunt for new signings.

Are you getting as restless as he is?
