Arsenal plotting move for Manchester United winger Anthony Martial as replacement for Alexis Sanchez
Arsene Wenger is plotting a move for Anthony Martial next summer as he considers potential replacements for Alexis Sanchez, according to to the Sunday People’s.
Chilean Sanchez is in the final year of his Arsenal contract and is all but certain to leave the Emirates at the end of the season, if not in January.
So Wenger is already on the lookout for a replacement who can operate through the middle and out wide and fellow Frenchman Martial fits the bill.
The Manchester United forward, 21, has been largely limited to appearances from the substitutes’ bench under Jose Mourinho and rarely gets a chance to play through the middle.
That has given Wenger a belief that Martial might be open to a switch south and he will make his move if he is encouraged to do so.
