Arsenal, Man Utd target Veloso ready for Sporting Lisbon move

Arsenal and Manchester United target Miguel Veloso is ready to leave Sporting Lisbon for the Premiership.

The Mirror says Arsenal could hijack Manchester United's attempts to sign Veloso for £20million in January.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is believed to be a big admirer of the versatile defender, who can play at left-back, centre back and across the midfield.

Veloso - also monitored by Sir Alex Ferguson - admits he'd consider a move to the Premier League. He said: "I'm willing to leave the club if the offer suits everyone."
