There has been some shock reports which have claimed Arsenal are monitoring Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick’s contract situation with interest.
The vastly-experienced 32-year-old, who has won a host of trophies during an eight-year spell at Old Trafford, has little more than 12 months remaining on his Red Devils deal.
And there has been talk that a new deal will not be signed as the red devils are looking to spend massively this summer, to freshen up this squad.
And the SportsDirectNews website claim the Gunners are keen on the know-how and pedigree ex-Tottenham Hotspur man Carrick could bring to the table, in addition to the small transfer fee involved.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is a long-term admirer of the midfielder and has tried to sign him twice before.
