Arsenal could enter the race to sign Ander Herrera on a free transfer from Manchester United this summer, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Gunners are interested in a potential swoop to sign Herrera at the end of the season when the versatile midfielder becomes a free agent.

The same article states that Herrera has reached a “deadlock” in his negotiations with Manchester United about a new deal ahead of the summer.

According to the same story, Arsenal would face competition from Ligue 1 holders Paris Saint-Germain for Herrera’s signature in the upcoming transfer window.

Given that Unai Emery is thought to have a limited summer transfer budget, Herrera would certainly fit the profile of player that Arsenal are looking to sign.

The Spain international has a wealth of experience in the Premier League following nearly five seasons at the 20-time English champions.

Herrera has scored 20 times in 186 games for Manchester United since his £30m move to Old Trafford from Athletic Bilbao in 2014.

The Spanish midfielder has won the FA Cup, the Europa League and the League Cup during his spell at Manchester United.

Arsenal signed Denis Suarez on loan from FC Barcelona in January but the Spanish star has failed to impress at The Emirates.
