Serie A giants Juventus and AC Milan are reportedly battling Arsenal to the signing of Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford.
It was claimed earlier in the week how the Gunners were eyeing up a swoop for the 24-year-old in 2023 with the player in the final year of his contract.
Though the Red Devils do have the option to trigger a 12-month extension to stay at Old Trafford.
Rashford has been a key player under Erik ten Hag this season – chipping in with five goals and three assists in eight matches in all competitions.
And according to Calciomercato, his displays have caught the eye of both Juve and Milan.
The Old Lady are said to have identified Rashford as a player that can bolster their attack alongside Dusan Vlahovic and Federico Chiesa.
Meanwhile Milan are reported to have earmarked Rashford as a possible replacement for Chelsea target Rafael Leao.
The Italian news outlet also commented on Arsenal‘s alleged interest where they stated the North London side are keeping an eye on him ahead of a possible free transfer.
But in a boost for Juventus and Milan, they are free to speak to Rashford from January if the striker is still yet to agree terms on a new deal.
It remains to be seen whether Paris Saint-Germain retain an interest in the England star having failed to sign him in the summer.
Speaking on NaijaOnPoint, lifelong United fan Lianne Sanderson, who won trophies for Arsenal and Juve during her career, believes Rashford has been below par this season.
The former Lionesses international, 34, even questioned how he won September’s Player of the Month award.
She said: “Rashford has been off the boil for about two or three years.
“I like Rashford and I think we talk a lot about all the amazing things he has done off the pitch – absolutely fantastic.
“But when you look at productivity on the pitch for the last two or three years, he hasn’t been good enough.
“I think sometimes Rashford gets the benefit of the doubt. I have no idea how Rashford has got player of the month. How?
“When [Erling] Haaland, Kevin De Bruyne, [Joao] Cancelo, there’s so many other players that should have got it.”
