The Manchester United winger Nani has emerged as a shock transfer target for Arsenal. The 26-year-old is apparently out of his way at Old Trafford after falling out with the manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

The player also has only 18 months left on his current contract and Manchester United are keen to sell him before the end of the transfer window. They are extremely aware of the fact that his transfer value will fall dramatically in the summer, while he will be able to leave for free in the next summer. Due to the significant problems faced by the squad and the pressure from the fans, Wenger has reportedly made Nani his primary transfer target in the January transfer window.

The Portuguese winger will cost around £ 20 million because the Old Trafford club are extremely keen on getting more than the £ 14 million paid for him back in 2007. During this period, Nani has been extremely successful with United and has won every major trophy. However, he has been unable to fill the void left by Cristiano Ronaldo. He was recently involved in a bust up with a youth team player, which has been the reason for him falling out with Sir Alex Ferguson. He is also demanding a £ 130,000 per week in a new contract, while United are ready to offer him only £ 90,000 per week.

This difference between the two players has not been sorted after months of negotiations. Even though the 26-year-old has been previously linked with the likes of Juventus, he is thought to be in favour of a move to London. Nani has the opportunity to be a first-team regular at Arsenal whereas he will face a lot of competition at Juventus. Wenger has been told that he has money to spend in January.
