Arsenal are set to battle Man Utd for the signature of Villarreal winger, Samuel Castillejo, According to news from Italian media the Premier League heavy weights have been tracking the winger and are ready swoop for the player this summer.
The 22 year-old who has scored three goals, and assisted five in 37 matches this season is a prized jewel for Villarreal who are unwilling to sanction a move away for the player.
There are speculations that the club would ask for upwards of £35 million for the Malaga academy product.
Arsenal would be looking for a replacement for Alexis Sanchez whose departure from the emirate stadium is imminent. Whether Samuel can settle in early at the Emirates is left to be seen, however one cannot deny that he looks like a good prospect for the future.
Man Utd are also looking to add him to their ranks having sold Memphis Depay last January without replacing him.
Although United have a clause in Depay’s contract that could see them buy him back, there seem to be no way back for the former Dutch league top scorer, despite his impressive form since joining Lyon.
