Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, is prepared to hit back at Manchester united manager Jose Mourinho, for eyeing Gunners star Mesut Ozil, by making a move for United winger Jesse Lingard, according to the latest press reports.
It was reported last month how Mourinho was contemplating a move for Ozil because of the Germans reluctance to sign a contract extension at the Emirates, this has apparently wound up Wenger who has decided to retaliate by targeting United player Lingard.
The England 23 year old winger also has a deal that will expire at the end of the next season and Wenger, has his eyes locked on him. He could get a £120,000 a week contract with a move to North London, with a fresh new deal at the “theatre of dreams” yet to be sorted.
One thing is for sure, neither club will give ground and will demand a huge premium for their players, unless the respective contracts are run down.
Could be interesting times ahead.
