Arsenal interested in Shakhtar Donetsk winger

Manor Salomon to Arsenal?

Arsenal have reportedly earmarked Shakhtar Donetsk winger Manor Solomon as a potential addition to their squad next summer.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta are currently looking to offload out-of-favour players, but that is unlikely to impact their transfer plans for the future.

According to The Guardian, Arteta is open to potential additions in the attack and Salomon is a player, who has caught the Spaniard's radar.

The 21-year-old fared impressively in Shakhtar's Champions League campaign and he scored home and away in victories over Real Madrid.

He still has two and a half years left on his contract and Shakhtar are bound to demand a good price for his departure next summer.

The Gunners signed Willian on a free transfer last year, but he has proved a huge disappointment and has yet to find the back of the net.

Hence, they could bring in a young winger next summer and Salomon could potentially replace Willian, who built his reputation with Shakhtar.
