Arsenal are set to hold talks with Manchester United star Marouane Fellaini about a shock transfer to The Emirates this summer, according to a report in France.

French media outlet Foot Mercato, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the Gunners will meet with the Belgium international’s representatives this week to discuss a potential transfer.

The same article states that Arsenal’s head of recruitment Sven Mislintat has shown an interest in the versatile 30-year-old midfielder, who is set to become a free agent this summer.

According to the same story, the Gunners are ready to challenge Serie A giants AC Milan for the Belgian midfielder’s signature in the current transfer window.

Fellaini is thought to be demanding a contract in excess of his current £80,000-a-week deal as the former Everton midfielder looks to secure the last big contract of his playing career.

Manchester United finished in second place in the Premier League table last season but lost 1-0 to Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final at Wembley.

The Gunners ended up in sixth spot to miss out on a Champions League spot for the second successive season to culminate in Arsene Wenger’s resignation after 22 seasons in charge.

Arsenal appointed Spanish head coach Unai Emery as his replacement last month.
