Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has reportedly earmarked Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey as a possible transfer target this summer.
United are expected to be in the market for a new midfielder at the end of the current campaign due to Michael Carrick’s retirement and the fact that Marouane Fellaini looks increasingly likely to leave on a free transfer.
Mourinho has also reportedly fallen out with Paul Pogba following a string of unconvincing performances which have resulted in the France international being left out of the starting lineup for United’s last three games.
The Portuguese manager is eager to add more dynamism to his side, and the Daily Star claims that he has identified Ramsey as an ideal candidate to provide that.
Ramsey’s current contract at the Emirates Stadium expires at the end of next season, and the Welshman recently suggested that talks over an extension are yet to make any serious progress.
The 27-year-old has spent the past decade with the Gunners, but could be ready to leave the club having seen them drop out of the Premier League’s top four in the past two seasons.
Arsenal are understood to be reluctant to lose the long-serving midfielder, but could be forced to cash in on him if a new deal is not agreed before the summer, with London rivals Chelsea also reportedly interested.
