In a rather shocking link up, Arsenal have emerged as the potential suitor for Manchester United player Phil Jones and reports from the Sun suggest that the Gunners are keen on signing the player in January.
With Chris Smalling, Eric Bailly and Daley Blind ahead of him in the pecking order since Jose Mourinho’s arrival at Old Trafford, Jones is set to spend most of his time on the bench. Jones is currently on a £110,000-a-week at Old Trafford and would cost around £10m, which Mourinho wants to reinvest into his defence as reported by the English Media house.
The Gunners are not the only ones looking to sign the player, reports suggest that Liverpool too are keeping close tabs on the player.
Arsenal signed Shkodran Mustafi this summer in a deal worth £35m. The defender has had a fine start at the Emirates partnering with Laurent Koscielny. Further, Gabriel Paulista returned to first-team action against Nottingham Forest and Per Mertesacker too recovering from his long-term injury, it will be a shocking move if Arsene Wenger decided to land him in the January window.
