Here in the Football Transfer Tavern we are keen to discover the long-term future of England international and Manchester United star Wayne Rooney.
The Daily Star gives punters a huge indication that he could be heading to North London as Arsenal look to put together an attractive package to lure Rooney to the Emirates Stadium.
New United manager David Moyes takes charge at Old Trafford for the first time next week and upon his return he is set to hold showdown talks with Rooney about his future.
The Gunners are hopeful of taking advantage of the uncertain situation to persuade Rooney to make the surprise switch to Arsenal this summer with the Gunners capable of paying the 27-year-old wages in excess of £200,000-a-week.
Arsene Wenger wants to create a partnership of Rooney and Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain, who looks set to complete a £22 million transfer to the Emirates Stadium soon, to help bring his side closer to Chelsea, Manchester City and United in the Premier League title race.
Do Arsenal stand any realistic chance of luring Rooney to North London this summer? Rate this rumour below.
