Manchester United face Arsenal fight for Fellaini

Published 2 Comments

Manchester United have been joined by Arsenal in the race to sign Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini, according to the Manchester Evening News.

The Gunners are poised to pounce after United incensed Everton with a £28m bid for the Belgium international and left-back Leighton Baines, which was described by the Toffees as "derisory and insulting".

Arsenal are becoming increasingly desperate to strengthen their squad before the September 2 transfer deadline passes and are now considering a bid of between £18m-£20m for Fellaini, which could tempt Everton to cash in.

The north London outfit have also made a £10m offer to Newcastle United for midfielder Yohan Cabaye, while reports suggest that Juventus starlet Paul Pogba is also on the Gunners' radar.

Arsene Wenger appears to have been forced into action following his side's shock 3-1 defeat to Aston Villa on Saturday - a result which infuriated the club's frustrated supporters, who urged the Arsenal boss in no uncertain terms to spend some money.

They fear that, unless Arsenal bring in some top-class reinforcements within the next fortnight, the Gunners' trophy drought will stretch to a ninth year.
