Arsenal are ready to make a move for Manchester United attacking midfielder Jesse Lingard and will double the wages on offer at Old Trafford, according to The Sun.
The Red Devils have been linked with a move for the Gunners attacking talisman Mesut Ozil, with the latest rumbling a way of Arsene Wenger hitting back.

Lingard’s contract expires in 18 months time and there has been no announcement over a potential extension for the English winger.
As such, the report suggests that Arsenal will offer the home-grown attacker £120,000 per week to move to the Emirates Stadium – twice what is on offer in Manchester.
Lingard is part of United’s first-team squad but has the likes of Juan Mata, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Anthony Martial as competition for a starting berth.
The two Premier League clubs have done business in the recent past, with Arsenal signing Danny Welbeck from United in the summer of 2014 and Robin van Persie going the other way in 2012.
