Arsenal are planning to turn up the heat on Manchester United over French whizkid Paul Pogba. The Daily Star says United face a battle to keep hold of Pogba, with Arsenal ready to make a move.

Manager Arsene Wenger wanted the French midfielder before he moved to United in 2009.

But the Gunners have been given fresh hope that they could land Pogba at the second attempt.

Pogba, 18, has snubbed United's attempts to tie him to a new deal and will be free to talk to clubs in January as his current deal expires next summer.
