Transfer Talk LATEST: Wayne Rooney is ‘ideal’ for Arsenal says Usmanov

Arsenal shareholder, Alisher Usmanov has urged the club to step up in their pursuit of Wayne Rooney.

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger is thought to be keen to strengthen his attacking options this summer with a deal for Gonzalo Higuain already in the pipeline.

However, the coveted Manchester United forward, Wayne Rooney remains the number one target for the Gunners as they look to put together a title winning squad this summer.


Having loosened the purse strings, Arsenal are keen to break the bank for superstars this summer, with the Russian billionaire and Arsenal’s second-biggest shareholder, Usmanov claiming that Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney could be the ideal signing for Arsenal.

“He is a great player, there would be great success for Rooney [if he joined Arsenal], and for Arsenal too,” Usmanov told CNBC.

“It is high time for the club to win the highest trophies in the European Champions League, but I believe in the club’s future,” Usmanov added.
