Arsenal are weighing up a £15 million move for out-of-favour Manchester United winger Nani, according to the Daily Star.

The 26-year-old endured a difficult season at Old Trafford last campaign, making only 21 appearances in all competitions as he fell down Sir Alex Ferguson’s pecking order. His attitude and on the pitch form has been questioned in recent months and he played just three games since being controversially sent off against Real Madrid in the quarter final’s of the Champions League in March.

The Star claim Arsene Wenger will be handed a sizable transfer kitty this summer and is understood to be a big fan of the Portugal international, with the long-serving Gunners boss understood to be weighing up a £15m swoop.

Wenger made life easy for United last summer when he agreed to sell them captain Robin van Persie after some very straight forward negotiations and the Frenchman may try and use this as a bargaining chip in any potential move for Nani.

The former Sporting Lisbon wingers future is unlikely to be resolved until he holds talks with new boss David Moyes but the newspaper suggests United may be prepared to do business and cash in after a turbulent year at Old Trafford which saw Nani involved in a bust-up with team mate Davide Petrucci last September where he allegedly threw a punch at the youngster in the gym.

    If MAN U will sell, Nani should be a very good addition to arsenal team. When in form, he is among the best in the world.

    Frankly, I dont like this transfer. Why, you may wonder? Because he will be a hurdle for our youngsters like Ryo Miyachi, Oxlade Chamberlain and lots more. He does not bring anything different to what we have already.
    Keep him at Old Tafford please.
