Manchester United & Arsenal facing £25m Kroos fight

Published Add your comment

Manchester United and Arsenal face competition from Italian giants Juventus in the race to sign Toni Kroos, according to reports.

Tuttosport claims the Serie 'A' side are interested in bringing the player to Turin in the summer, and could to join the transfer scramble for the 24-year-old at the end of the season.

Kroos was heavily linked with a move to the Red Devils in the summer, with David Moyes making a personal scouting check on the player at the end of January.

However, the Premier League champions ran out of time to bring the player to Old Trafford before February, and could pay the price for their failure moving forward.

After initial struggles at the start of the campaign, Sir Alex Ferguson's successor did bring Juan Mata to Manchester United for a club record fee.

But securing Champions League football could hold the key for the Red Devils if they harbour genuine ambitions of landing Kroos - whose contract expires in 2015.

Arsenal are in a much better position to return to Europe's top table next season, and are in contention to win the Premier League this season despite a blip yesterday (Saturday).

And, reports in The Daily Mail at the start of the month claimed Arsene Wenger was ready to join the transfer scramble for the German international in the summer - potentially pairing Kroos alongside compatriot Mesut Ozil in the Gunners' line-up.

The report claimed £25million would be the fee required to secure the player's services, and it's a fee that Arsenal showed they are willing to pay in the summer to bring the right type of player to the Emirates Stadium.
