Arsenal and Manchester City are both being linked with a move for Juventus playmaker Paul Pogba.

The Daily Express claims the Serie ‘A’ champions could be tempted to cash-in on the French international, with both Premier League clubs willing to pay £17million for the player.

Pogba only moved to Italy last summer, joining the Bianconeri in acrimonious circumstances after a Bosman free transfer from Manchester United.

Indeed, the move left a bitter taste in the mouth of former Red Devils supremo Sir Alex Ferguson, with the Scot critical of the 20-year-old following his move away from Old Trafford.

However, Pogba has flourished since arriving at the Juventus Stadium, and featured 37 times for club and country last term.

It’s form that’s alerted top clubs in England once again, and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is one of those keen to sign the player.

The Gunners chief has a track record of getting the best out of young players at the Emirates Stadium, and would hope to work his magic on the often-temperamental youngster.

Manchester City, meanwhile, are yet to announce their new manager, although Manuel Pellegrini is expected to take the helm at the Etihad Stadium.
And, the report intimates that Pogba could be one of the former Malaga chief's first signings for the Citizens, in a move that would also land a major blow to big local rivals United.
