Arsenal are considering making a surprise bid to sign Marouane Fellaini from Manchester United this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the north London side are monitoring the midfielder’s situation at Old Trafford, with the Belgian set to become a free agent at the end of the month.

Manchester United are believed to be keen on keeping hold of the 30-year-old midfielder, but he is yet to agree terms on a new contract at Old Trafford.

According to the same report, Arsenal will hold talks with Fellaini’s representatives this week as they consider a swoop to bring him to The Emirates in what would be one of Unai Emery’s first summer signings.

The same article says that Fellaini remains in talks with Manchester United about the possibility of signing a new deal, but the Belgian has recently rejected the offer of a new one-year deal worth around £80,000 a week.

It is also claimed that if he cannot agree a new deal with Manchester United, then Fellaini would favour a transfer to Arsenal over AC Milan, who are also said to be interested in the Belgian midfielder.
