Mason Greenwood would be a perfect fit for Arsenal

Arsenal lining up a shock move for Manchester United star

According to El Nacional, Man Utd’s Mason Greenwood is looking for a possible way out of Old Trafford.

The young striker has seen lesser action under their new German coach Ralph Rangnick, who has looked elsewhere for inspiration.

With Cristiano Ronaldo already in front of the que for the center forward position and other players being selected for the remaining striking places, the young Englishman is reportedly “upset.”

It is an open secret that Arsenal are on the lookout for a new center forward. The club’s inability to move on any of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexander Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah stopped them from pursuing a target last summer.

Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham was heavily linked, however he ended up joining Italian side Roma.

Several reports have suggested that Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic or Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin are the top targets of the London side.

But if Greenwood is in the market too, it will be hard for the North London outfit to not give a fight for his signature.

The report further suggested that Juventus and Barcelona are also tracking the 20-year-old’s current situation in Manchester.

With his contract set to expire in 2025, Greenwood won’t come cheap. However, with the amount Arsenal are reportedly willing to spend on Vlahovic or Calvert-Lewin, it won’t be surprising if the Premier League side go out and spend a bigger fee on a younger player, who has vast potential.

It will not be a case of round holes and square pegs but round holes and round pegs. Greenwood and Arsenal can be a perfect marriage.

A quartet of Greenwood, Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli and Emile Smith Rowe can have a huge impact on the pitch, for years to come.

United fans would obviously not want their talented youngster to leave them for their rivals. Whereas Arsenal fans would be hoping to do a “Robin Van Persie” to their counterparts.

There is still not much substance to the links between Arsenal and Greenwood. But if there is, I would be lying if I say I’m not excited.

      In the making!

  2. The-Real-Vieira-Lynn-4ever says:

    are you sure that’s a picture of Greenwood??

    1. Grandad says:

      It’s the Greenwood who now plays for Leeds who was I think released by Arsenal.

      1. The-Real-Vieira-Lynn-4ever says:

        I knew it wasn’t Mason, it was simply my attempt to be both a little passive aggressive and cheeky

  3. Davi says:

    He’s really good but I don’t think he’s the type of player we need. Would play a similar role to martinelli when we really need more of a specialist centre forward.
    We really need a player who brings the same qualities as lacazette, only a more consistent finisher and ideally a more height/strength and better passing ability. Greenwood, I think, is a winger-forward

  4. fairfan says:

    The three Arsenal goal scorers v Leeds cost a total of 7 million quid. Pepe Auba and Laca cost a total of 180million and contributed zero goals.
    Surely its obvious the days of the super expensive striker is over. Greenwood Man U would be ideal next season but only on loan. We can loan a striker every year until we find free strikers good enough from our own academy. We should only buy top class youngsters 17-18 years old for a max of 6-7 mill pound like Martinelli and Guendouzie. 50m should be our max spend each summer.

  5. the big dog says:

    we don’t need him he’s a flop.

  6. John walker says:

    What rubbish do people keep coming up with. ManU are never going to release Greenwood especially not to Arsenal a main contender for a Champions league position. Next season ManU will have a new manager granted he will want to bring his own players in but Greenwood will be the player to take over from Ronnie .

  7. PJ-SA says:

    English, young, highly spoken of and at ManU….

    Will likey cost 80mil+

  8. Wayne says:

    Arsenal needs a quality striker like Vlahovic, but, he is not interested in joining Arsenal, as his dream lies in a playing for a bigger club. Simply, he does not rate Arsenal highly, therefore, Arsenal must forget about this expensive 70m pounds Vlahovic and buy Brazilian striker Arthur Cabral, whose, transfer market value is 13m pounds. Cabral has the qualities of Aubameyang and Lacazette combined with an impressive 2020-21 season thus far, scoring 14 goals and 4 assists in only 17 matches for Basel in the Swiss super league. As compared to other more expensive top targets like Isak ,David and Adeyemi, who, may not be available until next summer, Arthur Cabral is available in the January transfer window and Arsenal should buy him. Another striker Arsenal should consider buying is Darwin Nunez as his transfer market value is only 17m pounds.

    1. papi says:

      bro, Cabral does not have the pace, but hes decent. Nunez has a buy out of €160m and Barca Atleti and City +++ are looking.

      We need a captain and a forward. Declan Rice and someone up there. I like the names were linked with. Lets go

    2. ShineGunners says:

      Vlahovic. His ambition is small.
      Going to those so called glamorous clubs are not challenging.

      Arsenal is a big club and will be bigger. And soon Arsenal will be playing attractive soccer with so many talents growing together. These lads want a challenge to show themselves they can start a revolution and do something different here and will. Arsenal will be in Champions League and will win Epl soon enough.

      Coming to Arsenal to play shows that you need to have a strong character and be involved in something different and not rely so much on others glamorous reputations and got stuck and being ignored on the bench one day.

  9. Grandad says:

    Michael Carrick and Gary Neville are on record in identifying Greenwood as a ” natural CF”.. I would normally disregard the views of Neville, but , on this occasion, he may be right.

  10. Wayne says:

    If Arsenal can qualify for the champions league, there’s a chance to sign Irling Haaland in the summer transfer window, especially if Odegaard is named new captain of the team.

      FANTASIST!

  11. Kisapamungu felix says:

    Great addition to our squard

  12. jon fox says:

    YET ANOTHER KITE FLYING EXERCISE! All sane fans know for 100% certainty there is ZERO chance of Greenwood coming to us.

    THAT BEING SO, IT IS POINTLESS DISCUSSING HIS MERITS OR FAULTS FURTHER.

    1. Admin Pat says:

      Well ,Jon, being a realist surely you would be more accurate to say about 14%

      1. jon fox says:

        No PAT. where you get “say 14%” from, goodness only knows!
        Zero chance is correct, esp when you consider our owner and the fee HAALAND would cost. He looked nailed on for City last summer and most would have said far more than 14% chance to go there.

        But it did not happen. I am a TRUE realist and understand realistic odds, from a betting point of view, FAR better than any other regular on here ,including you.

        1. Admin Pat says:

          You forgot to say that you were the most modest Jon!

          1. Weeble says:

            I remember him wanting over 500k quid per week. Not happening at Arsenal

          2. jon fox says:

            The reason I, as a truthful person, did not claim to be modest is because it is not particularly true about football matters.

            I am modest about things of which I truly know little or nothing , which is very many things. THAT is the TRUTH, as ever PAT!

  13. Professor lalala says:

    Continue dreaming……impossible…..even if United wants to sell…..they would never sell him to Arsenal….that’s for sure!
