Arsenal launching bid for Man Utd defender Eric Bailly

Arsenal are moving for Manchester United defender Eric Bailly.

The Sun says Bailly will start United's summer clear-out - with a move lined up to Arsenal.

The Ivory Coast centre-back, 25, has not played since the Champions League clash against Paris Saint-Germain when he was subbed before half-time.

And the £30million signing is set to end his three-year stay at Old Trafford by moving to the Emirates as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer starts rebuilding United's squad.

Unai Emery has been an admirer of the ex-Villarreal defender after facing him in La Liga while coaching Sevilla.

United are likely to take a hit on the fee they paid in 2016 as Bailly has just one full season on his United contract, with Arsenal set to start negotiations at £20m.
