Former Chelsea and United midfielder Wilkins has given his opinion on the speculation, suggesting that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger wants the 28-year-old because of his Champions League experience with the Red Devils.

“I think Arsene is looking at the Champions League aspect as well,” said Wilkins on the Alan Brazil Up Front podcast.
“He has played in that, so he knows his way around the Champions League. Obviously Arsenal are still in it.”
