How Arsenal could line up with Marcus Rashford as Arteta assembles lethal front line with incredibly low average age

ARSENAL could add Marcus Rashford to their attacking ranks with the Manchester United star unhappy with his game time.

The England international is having a poor season by his standards, netting just five times in 26 appearances.

And he has either come off the bench or watched 90 minutes from the sidelines 13 times this term.

According to the Mirror, Rashford could be offered an escape route out of Old Trafford by Arsenal.

The Gunners are in desperate need of signing a striker in the summer.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang left in January leaving just Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah as their remaining senior centre-forwards – but both are out of contract in the summer.

And Rashford could help lead the line in front of the exciting talents of Bukayo Saka, Emile Smith Rowe, Martin Odegaard and Gabriel Martinelli.

An attacking line-up of Martinelli, Odegaard, Saka and Rashford has an average age of just 21.

Alternatively, Arsenal could look to sign Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin if a move for Rashford fails to materialise.

As SunSport revealed, Everton will cash in on Dominic Calvert-Lewin at the end of the season.

However, West Ham are also keen on Calvert-Lewin and made inquiries in January only to be put off by the asking price of around £60million.

In midfield, the Gunners could move for Leicester ace Youri Tielemans, whose contract expires in the summer of 2023.

Arsenal reportedly held talks with the midfielder’s representatives in January over a potential switch to the Emirates.

The Foxes have reportedly slashed their asking from £60million to just £35m to avoid losing him on a free.

And in defence, William Saliba could finally be given a chance to shine alongside Ben White after breaking into the French national team.

Saliba has been in fine form for Marseille on loan.

But he’d face a fight with Brazilian Gabriel for a starting spot.
