Arsenal are reportedly keen to launch a last-ditch attempt to sign Spain international Ander Herrera.

The Manchester United midfielder is thought to have already penned a pre-contract with Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain, opting against signing a new deal with the Old Trafford outfit.

Herrera’s deal expires in the summer and the star is free to talk to foreign teams about a summer transfer.

That does not apply to Manchester United’s direct rivals, but L’Equipe state Unai Emery is a huge fan of Herrera and wants Arsenal to move for the Spaniard.

The Parisians are confident they have won the hunt to snap Ander up on a free transfer, but neither Arsenal or Manchester United are giving up just yet.

The Red Devils believe they can still convince Ander to perform a U-turn and pen an extension with the current club, while Unai is pushing for his side to make a move.

The Gunners would happily land Herrera, as the 29-year-old Spaniard would come without a transfer sum.

With the club yet to secure UEFA Champions League football, Spanish manager is still waiting to learn how much money he will be handed in the summer to spend.

Arsenal have been connected with a host of Manchester United stars in the latest months, with centre-half Eric Bailly a reported target for Unai.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan was the last Red Devils player to switch from Old Trafford to the Emirates Stadium, a deal which saw Chile international and then key Arsenal player Alexis Sanchez going in the opposite direction.
