Arsenal are interested in signing Jesse Lingard from Manchester United, according to The Sun.
It has been reported by the British tabloid that Arsenal are ready to offer Lingard a weekly salary of £120,000.
The 23-year-old, who can operate as an attacking midfielder or as a winger, has been on the books of United his entire professional career so far.
According to The Sun, Arsenal are targeting Lingard in response to United’s pursuit of attacking midfielder Mesut Ozil.
Lingard is a good and promising player, but would he improve the current Arsenal team? Would the United attacker add anything different to what the Gunners already have now?
While Arsenal have to make sure that they do not lose Ozil, especially to direct Premier League rivals such as United, they need not sign Lingard and should invest their money elsewhere.
Lingard has created 12 chances in seven Premier League appearances for United so far this season.
