Arsenal 'Won't Rule Out' Shock Move For Manchester United's Jesse Lingard
Arsenal are not ruling out a shock move for Manchester United flop Jesse Lingard.
A move for the 27-year-old midfielder 'can't be ruled out', according to stunning reports.
Lingard's disappointing United career looks to be coming to an end after graduating from the club's famed youth academy.
And it appears he's attracting interest from Arsenal who're seeking a replacement for Real Madrid loanee Dani Ceballos once the season ends.
Lingard has history with Arsenal as he infamously produced the 'milly rock' celebration during his side's 3-1 victory back in December 2017. He also moonwalked on the Emirates turf.
Needless to say, Lingard potentially switching Premier League allegiances sent social media into overdrive.
The Athletic put out a piece on Jesse Lingard and his possible destinations. They say a move to Arsenal can't be ruled out because we have a history of signing United rejects and Sanllehi dealing with super agents like Raiola. What a load of nonsense.

A second tweeted: "Loool tbf he's seen how good Jese does at the dance floor so I wouldn't be surprised."
A third added: "Jesse gonna be world class playing at the Emirates regularly."
Arsenal fans could be cheering him on next season and the player's future is now in the hands of Mino Raiola who'll handle his potential transfer.
But his dealings doesn't sit well with Jamie Carragher who slammed the controversial super-agent.
"Raiola is not likeable, but he is successful. The flip side of that is he provokes negative headlines," the Liverpool legend explained.
"Those who choose to work with him Jesse Lingard the most recent to join his circle - evidently believe that is a price worth paying.
"I have to admit I struggle with that. I find it staggering a player would sign up with an agent so openly critical of his club's manager."
Lingard to Arsenal? Watch this space.
