Man Utd news: Eric Bailly is 5/1 to join Arsenal in January

The Manchester United star has struggled for form this term and could look to North London for a fresh start.

Betfair have the 24-year-old at 5/1 to move to the Emirates in the next transfer window which opens in a matter of weeks.

Bailly has seen limited first-team action this term, making just nine appearances for Jose Mourinho's side.

It's been reported the Special One would be open to an appropriate offer for the defender.

Betfair Spokesperson Katie Baylis said: “With talk that Arsenal see Bailly as their top defensive target in January we make it 5/1 that he will leave United for the Gunners and that price could shorten in the next week or so if these rumours heat up.”

Unai Emery is seeking strong back-up after Rob Holding suffered a long-term injury.

The 23-year-old ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament during a draw against United.

Laurent Koscielny is fighting to get back fit as he is overcoming a serious injury of his own, leaving Emery seeking more back-up.
