Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw is currently getting the attention of two Premier League giants — Chelsea and Arsenal – having turned his season around, according to reports.

Luke Shaw was largely criticized by José Mourinho for his poor defensive showings during the first half of the season, but the England international is currently one of the best defenders in the Portuguese manager’s team.

Having seen the defender’s recent impressive performances, Jose Mourinho is eager to extend his stay with the 20-time Premier League Champions so as to avoid losing him to rivals who are set to make an offer for his signature.

Luke Shaw is reportedly in talks with Manchester United over a new contract which he could sign before the end of the season. According to the MirrorSport, Chelsea and Arsenal are set to compete for the 22-year-old defender as both clubs are in search of a left-back ahead of next season.

Antonio Conte’s side were in the market shopping for a left-back who would deputize for Marcos Alonso in the winter transfer window, but they ended up buying Roma’s center-back Palmieri.

Wenger’s defense has been a major concern to the Frenchman this season, and he is set to find a lasting solution before the start of next season. Arsenal’s academy graduate Maitland-Niles was deployed to the left-back position in the early stage of the season, but he sometimes looks naive due to his inexperience playing against established strikers in the league.
