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