Arsenal & Manchester United target reveals talks

Brought to you by William Hill


Manchester United and Arsenal target Victor Wanyama has revealed there are talks going on regarding his future and admitted leaving Celtic was a possibility.

Both Arsenal and Manchester United have been linked with the Kenya international regarding a summer transfer, though he would not reveal the names of the clubs that were involved in negotiations with Celtic.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is reportedly looking for a defensive midfielder to help ease the burden on vice-captain Mikel Arteta, who has been filling in there since Alex Song left to join Barcelona.

New Manchester United manager David Moyes has inherited some midfield issues from predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson: Paul Scholes has retired, Anderson has failed to live up to expectations and Darren Fletcher has long-term health issues.

Wanyama is a powerful presence in the midfield and was crucial in Celtic’s progression to the Champions League knockout stages last season.

However, he has continually been linked with a move away from Parkhead and his most recent quotes reveal he would be open to a transfer.

"I still have contract with Celtic and I am their player, if anything comes up and it is good for me and the club, from there I will move on," he is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

"At the moment there are some things, some talks going on.

"But I am concentrating with the national side and I have left that with my agent and I have not contacted him.

"There are talks going on, but as I said I am on international duty and I will now what is going on when I go back to the club."
