Arsenal’s hope of finally securing the services of long-time target have been boosted with fresh claims by The Sun’s Journalist.
According to the Metro, Arsenal are set to complete the signing of Southampton’s Morgan Schneiderlin.
The French international midfielder has been tipped to exit the St. Mary’s Stadium this summer and is no short of suitors for his signature, with a handful of Premier League clubs keen.
It was reported some weeks ago that the Gunners already have a deal with the midfield enforcer over a switch to the north London this summer.
While more recent reports claim rivals Manchester United had beaten the Gunners to the 25-year-old’s signature.
Schneiderlin who has always been a target for Wenger, has now been tipped to complete a switch to the Emirates Stadium in the coming weeks by popular journalist Charlie Wyett.
The Sun’s Wyett, who has broken a number of Arsenal exclusives, told talkSPORT that Schneiderlin is moving to the Gunners.
‘I think Morgan Schneiderlin will be joining Arsenal,’ he explained per Metro.
‘He would be a good signing along with Petr Cech.’
