John Hartson suggested on The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast on talkSPORT on Friday morning (broadcast from 6am, July 15) that Arsenal should make a move for Paul Pogba in the summer transfer window.

Pogba has been on the books of Juventus since the summer of 2012 and has a contract with the Italian giants until June 2019, according to Transfermarkt.co.uk.

The former Manchester United midfielder has established himself as one of the best players in the world and has been linked with a move away from Juventus this summer.

According to Sky Sports, United are in talks to sign Pogba from Juventus in the summer transfer window.

It has been reported that the transfer fee that the Red Devils would have to pay to secure the services of the midfielder this summer could be as much as £100m.

Former Arsenal striker Hartson has suggested that Arsenal should make a move for the 23-year-old midfielder in the summer transfer window.

“Why aren’t Arsenal in for Pogba?” said Hartson on The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast on talkSPORT on Friday morning (broadcast from 6am, July 15) while discussing speculation linking Pogba with a move to United.

“One of the most sought-after players in world football. Why aren’t they in for (Antoine) Griezmann?”
