Arsenal are plotting a move for Manchester United starlet Paul Pogba, it has been claimed.

The 18-year-old is regarded as one of the brightest prospects in his position in European football, but has yet to break into the first team at Old Trafford.

According to Metro, Pogba will be allowed to discuss a move away from United in the New Year - with his contract set to expire next summer - and Arsenal are monitoring his situation.

The French midfielder has been compared to former Arsenal captain Patrick Vieira, and Arsene Wenger tried to sign the starlet prior to him joining United.

However, the Arsenal boss failed to keep him from the Red Devils' clutches, and Pogba was part of the United side that won the FA Youth Cup last season.

Pogba has made only one senior appearance for United since signing for the club from Le Havre in 2009, but is expected to be given more chances as the season progresses.


However, Sir Alex Ferguson realises he could lose Pogba if he continues to limit his exposure.

"If we hold Pogba back, what’s going to happen? He’s going to leave," said the United boss.
