Arsenal and Manchester United are on red alert over the availability of Anzhi star Willian.

The London Evening Standard says Anzhi Makhachkala announced that many of their star players will be sold as part of a mass clear-out.

Among those available will be Willian as reports in Russia suggest that billionaire owner Suleiman Kerimov is unhappy with their poor start to the new season and has decided to make wholesale changes.

Along with Arsenal and United, Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers will also be interested in Willian as he seeks an attacking midfielder.
