Two Horse Race: Premier League pair battle for Barca star

| 01.04.2019

As the end of the season nears its conclusion, the transfer merry-go-round starts spinning.

Both Arsenal and Manchester United are in desperate need to strengthen their defences with Barcelona’s Samuel Umtiti being touted.

Our traders have weighed in and has both clubs at 2/1 apiece to strike a deal for the Barcelona man.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has now bagged the United job on a permanent basis and should have significant funds to spend in the summer.

As for the Gunners, Unai Emery will be keen to bolster his arsenal too, with a centre-back high on his wish list.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Unai Emery still has work to do as far as Arsenal arrivals go, but fans will be pleased to see their side priced so short for two mega-money summer moves.”

Arsenal could also be in the market for a left back with Bayern Munich’s David Alaba just 6/4 to swap the Allianz Arena for the Emirates Stadium.
