Wenger himself confirmed he would sign only “top players” in winter, and this has seen the club linked to an avalanche of star players in recent weeks.
Manchester United have now emerged the front runners in the race to capture the signature of Paris St. Germain want-away winger Ezequiel Lavezzi in the January transfer window, according to tribalfootball,
Emissaries of the Red Devils were on Friday in the French capital to convince the Argentinian striker to join their club in this January transfer window but Lavezzi has refused their proposal: his intention is to return to Italy and to play for a Serie A club.
Red Devil Boss; Louis Van Gaal has stated in the past months that he needs to inject more pace to his attack in order to bring his philosophy to fruition.
The Red Devils have come under series of attacks from ex-United players and soccer pundit about their boring possessive play with no real attacking intent and the Dutchman is looking to do all he can to save his job as United boss by signing players with pace.
Anthony Martial has been drifted wide to the left wing position in order to solve the lack of pace, while Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard are being used interchangeable on the right wing to no greater effect.
A player like Lavezzi would help United’s course as he is very fast on the ball and equally creative.
