The Sun has claimed uncertainty surrounding Jesse Lingard’s own contract situation at Old Trafford could see him come to Arsenal.

Well, it certainly makes a change for contract talks to focus on another club with Arsenal purportedly the potential beneficiary for once – if this proved to be the case with Lingard remains to be seen.

According to these reports Arsenal are looking to tempt the England international to North London on a deal worth £120,000 a week for him to quit our Premier League rivals.

Lingard has forced his way into the Manchester United team in the past 18-months or so and played well enough from what I’ve seen.

I hadn’t been convinced this was well enough to warrant England involvement initially as I thought it was his ‘club’ and not ability that saw this. However, he’s started to win me over at international level but rumours of Arsenal interest in the 23-year-old haven’t.

Could you see this happening?
