The transfer window is up and running with a number of teams making big moves so far. One of such teams is Manchester United as the Red Devils have been busy with the signings of Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Welsh winger Daniel James.

However, the Old Trafford outfit are reportedly set to make a signing that could be the talk of the transfer window. Arsenal forward Pierre-EmerickAubameyang has been rumoured to be a target for Manchester United according to reports from England.

The 30-year-old forward is thought to be available on the transfer market as Arsenal could be tempted to cash-in on the player.

The former Borussia Dortmund forward netted 22 goals in the League last season and is regarded as one of best no 9 in the game.

Manchester United are thought to be preparing a bid that would test the Gunners resolve for the forward. The Metro claims that the Arsenal are ready to sell the forward for around £56 million.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery is understood to be interested in making multiple signings this summer but has been provided a paltry £45 million for transfers.

The Gabon international is seen as a good asset to sell and at the age of 30 entering his decline.  Manchester United are in need of a quality forward as rumours of Lukaku leaving the club persists.

Aubameyang would be the type of forward that would fit United, a player that is ready made and won’t need to adapt to the pace of the Premier League.

Manchester United have made high profile signings from rivals in the past decade starting with the move for Dimitar Bebartov from Tottenham which was followed with the capture of Dutch star Robin Van Persie from Arsenal.

It remains to be seen whether the club would sanction a high profile sale to their rivals.
