Arsenal will battle Chelsea for the signature of Wayne Rooney after renewing their interest int he unsettled Manchester United striker, according to the Telegraph.

The report claims the Gunners showed early interest in the 27-year-old after it became clear he wanted out of Old Trafford during the first few weeks of the summer but soon turned their attention to Liverpool’s Luis Suarez.

However, the north Londoners pursuit of the Uruguayan appears to have hit a dead end with Liverpool owner John W Henry insisting the striker will not be sold to Arsenal or any other club this summer. This appears to have led to Arsene Wenger turning his attention back to Rooney with the Telegraph reporting that the Frenchman is ready to go head-to-head with London rivals Chelsea for the players signature.

The Blues have already had two bids turned down by the champions for Rooney but the newspaper suggests that United may in fact prefer to sell to Arsenal as they are not regarded as a direct title-rival, and while the former Everton forward would prefer a switch to Stamford Bridge to work under Jose mourinho, it’s understood he would consider a move to the Emirates if they could strike a deal such is his desire for a fresh challenge.

Rooney sat out Rio Ferdinand’s testimonial game on Friday night and has been training alone or with the youngsters. David Moyes is trying to shield him from the senior squad as he continues to push for a move this summer, but the club have so far insisted he will not be sold.

    Man U can not ruin Rooney’s career because he is England number one so FA will never allow it happen
