Arsenal linked with a move for forward that failed to make the grade at Man Utd

Arsenal has been linked with a shock move for Manchester United flop, Memphis Depay as Mikel Arteta continues to struggle to secure the future of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Gunners are facing an uncertain future with the likes of Alexandre Lacazette and Aubameyang possibly leaving the Emirates.

Arteta remains confident that he will be able to convince Aubameyang to stay beyond his current deal, but the Spaniard will look to bring in Depay if he losses one or both strikers, according to Le10Sports.

Depay struggled during his stint in the Premier League with Manchester United, and the Red Devils moved him on to Lyon.

He has rediscovered his form at the French side and he seems to be on his way out of the French top flight with just one more year left on his contract.

Le10Sports reckons that the Dutchman would be tempted by a move back to the Premier League should Arsenal come knocking.

Depay scored 9 goals and provided 2 assists in just 13 league games for Lyon this season.

Arteta’s summer plans remain unclear, with the Spaniard having to deal with the future of many of his current players.

Adding Depay to the Arsenal teams would give them more options, but the Dutchman wouldn’t want to stay on the bench which could cause problems in the Arsenal dressing room.

    If any of AUBA, or Lacca leaves, Depay wouldn’t need to stay on the bench, he, Martinelli, Saka, Pepe and Nelson will be competing for spot on the starting line up. Am doubting AUBA will renew, not sure of lacca, the way AUBA sounds ‘not yet decided ‘, we should sell him asap else he would say the same thing time January and leave for free, that I can’t stomach, I can take it if we sell now and use the fund to improve current squad

    Yes I must agree Adajim, I loathe the thought of him leaving but as you say I would be even more gutted if it was on a free,it looks like its the only way funds will be available to replace him, personally I don’t think Depay is anywhere near Auba’s class or quality, changing the subject it was interesting that Guendouzi was missing yet again indicating that he is not doing enough to convince Arteta to keep him,I am going to stick my neck out here and say that Matteo and Ozil are on the way out of this club.

      I think I would rather keep Auba 1 more year and loose him for free than sell him now and get 20-30 mil. Just hope he doesn’t go to another English club

      Depay would be decent signing, but more as a striker than left winger. He is also playing as a false 9 for the national team and he plays really well there. So hope he is more Lacas replacement than Aubas, cause Aubas replacement is Martinelli in my eyes

    Depay would be a good buy, 26 starting his prime age. Plays the LW, he’s not a striker.
    If we get him, it only means more central work for Martinelli, which is good.
    The LW will constantly be between Delay and Saka, Arteta is trying to have solid options for rotation just like Pep does at City.
    I’d love to have Delay and keep Aubameyang, sell Lacazette.
    Also we’ll be getting him for less than 20 million, so the deal makes sense.
    Don’t play the united reject card, he was young and both Salah & De Bruyne were Chelsea rejects

      Depay will be just fine to replace lacazet and for that amount , i think is a good buy. Depay is strong and skillful and he has eyes for goals ,
