Arsenal have been installed by the bookies as favourites to sign Manchester United midfielder Micheal Carrick this summer, according to reports.

The midfielder’s contract expires at the end of the current season and there is yet to be any indication he will be offered a new deal at Old Trafford.

With the imminent exit of Mathieu Flamini, Mikel Arteta and Thomas Rosicky, Arsenal looks a bit light in the midfield section and reports had claimed Wenger is weighing up the idea of signing the experienced midfielder on a free transfer.

According to the Mirror via the Independent, Arsenal have been installed as 15/8 to sign Carrick by the bookies.

Wenger has a long standing interest in the midfielder as he previously tried to sign the 34 year old on three occasions and the French man will be hoping to be lucky the fourth time this summer.

Wenger is a big fan of Carrick and has followed his progress since his days at West Ham and the French tactician believes the midfielder still has a lot to offer Arsenal should he leave Old Trafford this season.

Arsenal are on the verge of completing the signing of Granit Xhaka from Borussia Monchengladbach and it is believed there is still space for Carrick in the squad should Wenger firm up his interest.
