Arsenal are reportedly still keen to sign Manchester United teenager Paul Pogba.

The 18-year-old is considered to be one of the finest young prospects at Old Trafford, and is currently on the fringes of the first-team.

However, according to the Daily Star, Pogba has rejected the offer of a new contract from United - giving Arsenal 'fresh hope' of signing the midfielder.

Pogba's current deal expires next summer, which means he will be allowed by United to talk to prospective suitors in January.

The French youngster 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 he is thought to feature prominently in the plans of Sir Alex Ferguson.

The United boss, meanwhile, is reported to be keen to bring Benfica enforcer Javi Garcia to Old Trafford when the transfer window opens.
