Report: Arsenal interested in Southampton star Sadio Mane

Sadio Mané

Arsenal are interested in a move for the Southampton forward.

Arsenal are interested in a move for Southampton forward Sadio Mane, according to the Mirror.

Arsenal are expected to be busy this summer, with it being predicted that manager Arsene Wenger will look to reinvent his squad.

Several are expected to arrive at the club, while there could also be a number of departures.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been linked with a move away, with the same report claiming that Premier League champions Leicester City are planning to make an offer for him.

They will also be without Danny Welbeck for nine months after he picked up a serious knee injury in the 2-2 draw with Manchester City.

That leaves Wenger to look at adding to his front line, and the Mirror reports that Southampton star Mane has impressed him with his performances.

Ronald Koeman’s side are not interested in a sale, although the report claims a £17million bid could secure him.

They are likely to face fierce competition for his signature though, with Manchester United having made him a target last summer and continually being linked with a move in the build up to this summer, too.
