Marcus Rashford is growing restless at Manchester United, and Arsenal are reportedly one of the clubs interested in him.

The Times report that speculation is mounting that Marcus Rashford could consider his future at Manchester United, amid concerns over his position in the team and the potential consequences for his World Cup chances.

90min report that Rashford is frustrated under Ralf Rangnick, and believes the interim manager may not see a future for him.

Rangnick will stay on in the United hierarchy after he leaves his managerial post, so his opinion will still be relevant after this summer.

The same outlet suggest West Ham, Arsenal, Newcastle United, and Atletico Madrid are all keeping an eye on the situation, whilst The Times add Paris Saint-Germain to the list.

Rashford has a deal lasting until 2023, with an option for a further year, so his contract isn’t quite at an end just yet. But it’s reaching the point where United will likely want to sell or extend.

The 24-year-old isn’t having his best season, with five goals and two assists in 24 matches. It’s certainly a step down from the 21 goals and 12 assists he managed in all competitions last campaign.

We know Arsenal are in the market for a young striker this summer, and perhaps Mikel Arteta might believe he could help recapture Rashford’s best form.

Whether Manchester United would sell to Arsenal for a reasonable price is another matter, and the Gunners are likely to have other targets they may prefer.
