Arsenal new boss Unai Emery could sign Marcus Rashford this summer but Man Utd will demand at least £60m, according to a football finance expert.

The England international forward has enjoyed World Cup success played the semi-finals of the tournament.

Rashford burst onto the scene during LVGl’s tenure at Old Trafford back in 2016.

However, the youngster has struggled to secure regular first-team football since the arrival of Jose Mourinho at the club.

Rashford has previously revealed his desire to play from the middle – and his wish may come true but away from Manchester United this according to football finance expert Kieran Maguire.

He told Starsport exclusively: “Mourinho will be reluctant to let him go but you can see clubs taking an interest in him [following the World Cup].

“His market fee now, given his age and potential, is around £60m so that is going to restrict the interest to three or four clubs.

“Whether he would want to try his hand overseas is another question, though.

“There’s no way he will go to Manchester City or Liverpool.

“So that only really leaves Chelsea and Arsenal.”

Arsenal are currently in the market for offensive minded players after securing the services of Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Stephan Lichsteiner, Brand Leno, Lucas Torreira and French wonderkid Matteo Guendouzi.
