Arsenal target Manchester United star in £15m deal
Arsenal transfer news: Luis Nani linked with £15m move from Manchester United
Arsenal are mulling over a £15milion move for Manchester United winger Luis Nani, according to reports.
The Daily Star claims Gunners chief Arsene Wenger is an admirer of the Portuguese international, and is ready to swoop for the unsettled 26-year-old following Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure.
Nani was unable to hold down a regular starting spot at Old Trafford last season, featuring just 21 times in all competitions. Indeed, his biggest moment in the Red Devils campaign was a controversial red card in the Champions League defeat to Real Madrid.
Ferguson had always backed the former Sporting Lisbon starlet to the hilt at Manchester United, but new boss David Moyes could see the temperamental 62-cap international differently.
Wenger has money to spend at Arsenal this summer, according to the report, and is poised to swoop for Nani.
The Gunners will also hope previous dealings with United can help make a move for the player run smoothly, with Robin Van Persie swapping the Emirates Stadium for the Premier League champions last summer.
Now, the Arsenal boss hopes Nani moves in the opposite direction.
