Arsenal among the clubs tipped to battle for Man Utd star

Former Premier League goalscorer Kevin Phillips claims Tottenham and Arsenal are options for Paul Pogba.

The Frenchman is running down his contract at Manchester United and he might not extend the deal with them.

The Red Devils are keen to keep him in their squad. However, that might not happen.

Ideally, he should leave the Premier League, especially because the likes of PSG, Real Madrid and Juventus want to sign him.

However, the World Cup winner could join another Premier League club, according to The Telegraph.

Phillips says Chelsea and Manchester City are off of the list of teams he can join.

He then tipped Arsenal and Spurs to land him if he was to join another EPL side.

He told Football Insider: “I think Tottenham could be an option though. Would he be able to play under Conte in that system? Conte certainly got the best out of him at Juventus. That relationship makes it possible.

“Arsenal is another club. He could slot in alongside Thomas Partey.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Phillips was a great player and a good pundit, but a move for Pogba very unlikely for Arsenal.

The midfielder is a fine player, and he has had an accomplished career so far.

However, Arsenal needs a player with a different profile and I don’t think we want to deal with his loudmouth agent, Mino Raiola.

  1. Pogba is not focused on his football, a divisive character in the dressing room, already old, bad influence on our impressionable young players, sky-high wages and a devil of an agent. All these for a few inconsistent good performances and marketing. NO. THANK YOU


    Philips, alone, maybe does believe it but he does not matter, as his views are plainly ludicrous and he has no influence on what our club does.

    I doubt any Gooner will fall for this nonsense though. Can anyone imagine for even a moment that MA of all people would wish such a disruptive and bone idle player at our club!!
    Neither can I!

    1. Exactly. I think we can all see the type of player Arteta wants at the club now, and Pogba is the absolute antithesis of that.

      I too am beyond weary of these nonsensical rumor articles, especially in the middle of the season!

  3. Absolutely no way he would turn into another ozil, willian, auba situation,

    Players like them on enormous wages but not putting in the same shift brings bad atmosphere to the dressing room,
    We are going in the right direction with the signings we have made lately let’s keep signings under 25 years of age…
