Arsenal could be set to beat Manchester United to the signing of a £40 million Ghana international.

While it's usually Manchester United outspending Arsenal in the transfer market, the Gunners have spent almost four times as much as their rivals this summer. Declan Rice cost £105m the north Londoners, Kai Havertz £60m and Jurrien Timber £40m. United have so far only brought in Mason Mount for around £55m.
