Arsenal & Manchester United still tracking Holland midfielder

Published 2 Comments

Arsenal and Manchester United are still on the trail of promising Holland international Kevin Strootman.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, AC Milan have been mooted as an ideal destination for the PSV Eindhoven man, but interest from both Arsenal and Manchester United is remaining.

The report claims both Arsene Wenger and David Moyes regard Strootman very highly and see him a possible enhancement to their respective central midfield areas.

Gunner manager Wenger is reportedly set to go on a major summer shopping spree and a defensive midfielder is one of the priorities on his list.

Strootman is a versatile midfielder who can play the deeper role as well as a more advanced position and is extremely mobile.

Manchester United’s new manager, Moyes, will be keen to make his mark on the squad and bring in some new faces over the summer.

However, he will inherit a depleted central midfield, as Paul Scholes has retired this summer, Anderson is woefully short of form and Darren Fletcher has concerns over his long-term fitness due to an ongoing health problem.
