Arsenal to challenge Man Utd for midfielders signature

Arsenal have joined the the race to sign Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic.

Matic has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United this summer, and could make a move once Tiemoue Bakayoko has signed on the dotted line with the Premier League champions.

However, according to Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Manchester United aren’t the only club vying for the Serbian’s signature.

Juventus have reignited their interest in signing the 28-year-old. It is claimed that he has been one of the Italian club’s top transfer targets, and could make their move.

Di Marzio also claims that Arsenal are interested in taking the midfielder from West to North London. They are prepared to offer Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as part of the deal, a player that Chelsea have been linked with having an interest in.

Oxlade-Chamberlain is one of a number of player who have just one year left on his deal at the Emirates and is yet to agree a new deal. He could now be used as a make weight to secure the signing of Matic.
