Former Manchester United winger Angel Di Maria is set to be the subject of a bid from Premier League side Arsenal.

The Argentine international is believed to be up for sale at Paris Saint Germain as his starting place in the team has been lost due to the signings of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe in the summer.

According to latest reports North London giants, Arsenal are considering making an offer for the 29-year old as a possible replacement for the outgoing Alexis Sanchez.

The move, however, hinges on whether or not The Emirates club can convince Di Maria into making a return to the Premier League.

The PSG attacker is very talented and experienced football who has stints at Benfica, Real Madrid and Manchester United.

His aforementioned time in Manchester after a £60 million move from Madrid turned out to be an unpleasant period for the player.

A good start to life at the club gave away to a place on the bench for long periods and a burglary of his home which made the star and his family feel ‘unsafe’.

Although the French Ligue 1 leaders are interested in selling the player, a move back to the UK does not seem to appeal to him.

The winger has made 13 appearances in Ligue 1 this season with 2 goals scored and 19 chances created.
