Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has not ruled out a move for want-away Manchester United star Wayne Rooney, according to the Daily Mirror.

Rooney has recently submitted a surprise transfer request away from Old Trafford, which has seen him being linked with the likes of Bayern Munich and PSG, as well as rival Premier League clubs Chelsea and Manchester City.

The 27-year-old has spent most of his career at United since joining for £30million as a teenager from Everton, and has had many ups and downs in his time at the club.

He is now believed to be unhappy with his role in the team, often being played out of position and finding himself on the bench in some big matches this season.

Arsenal have also been linked with a surprise move for the England international, as the Gunners look to add as striker to their ranks next season.

Having been linked with the likes of Christian Benteke and Stevan Jovetic, a move for Rooney would be a big surprise for many, but Wenger did not appear to rule out a bid when quizzed on it, saying: “Look, I’m not in a position today to speak about any transfer targets. What I am focused on is the short term and after the Newcastle game I give you answer about these questions.”
