REVEALED: Arsenal boss Wenger asked Man Utd for Shaw; will try again

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has made an attempt to sign Manchester United fullback Luke Shaw.

The Sun says United turned down a hush-hush approach from Arsenal for Shaw during the Alexis Sanchez talks.

Left-back Shaw was wanted by Wenger in exchange for Sanchez.

But United are expected to take up the option of the extra year on Shaw's contract rather than risk losing him at the end of the season.

Arsenal will be back if there is a snag as Shaw returns to form after an injury nightmare.

Sanchez was absent from Arsenal's 4-1 victory over Crystal Palace as he travelled up north to complete his £35million move to Old Trafford.

The swap deal is set to see Henrikh Mkhitaryan switch to the Emirates after the pair bid farewell to their respective teammates prior to travelling in opposite directions on the M6.
