Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is interested in signing Man Utd midfielder Michael Carrick, according to Daily Mirror.
The 34-year-old’s current deal at Old Trafford expires in the summer, and it’s still not clear whether he will be staying with the Red Devils beyond the summer.
Wenger has attempted to sign the player on three occasions before and is hoping that he will be finally able to land his target. The Frenchman is confident that Carrick, despite his age, can contribute to the Gunners’ squad.
Wenger first tried to sign Carrick when he moved to Tottenham from West Ham in 2004. He again failed in his attempt to sign the England international when he moved to Man Utd from Spurs in 2006.
The Frenchman was again keen in the player last season, but Carrick opted to sign a one-year extension with United.
The report claims that Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in the player’s services. Carrick has won five league titles and one Champions League title during his time with United.
As we previously reported, Carrick might depart from Old Trafford this summer as he is not pushing for a new deal at the moment and is waiting to see how the managerial situation plays out over the summer.
