There is certainly a lot of competition for the 25-year-old, and it is no wonder after his amazing season with the La Liga outfit. The 25-year-old helped his side to win the Europa League as well as come fifth in the league, making 47 appearances along the way. He largely played in defensive midfield through the campaign, which is a position that the Red Devils do need strengthening in.

Michael Carrick and Daley Blind largely featured there last time round. However, the former is now 33-years-old and cannot be expected to play every game in four competitions, while the latter’s versatility means that he may be needed elsewhere with so many games being played. As a result a move for the Poland international makes sense.

Manager Louis van Gaal will have to fight off a lot of interested parties if he wants to sign the midfielder though. The Saints have already had a €12 million bid for the player rejected, with Sevilla wanting his release clause of €30 million.

This may be enough to put off some of the suitors, and especially the Gunners. They may not even need Krychowiak due to the emergence of Francis Coquelin in defensive midfield last season, so pending so much could be seen as frivolous.
