Tony Cascarino has said further talkSPORT Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal shouldn’t sign Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford in the summer transfer window.
The former Chelsea player believes Rashford is not clinical and would not be able to lead the line for Arsenal.
The talkSPORT pundit doesn’t think a transfer for the England international striker – who earns £200,000 a week at Manchester United (Spotrac) – would happen to Arsenal.
Well-known and respected journalist Fabrizio Romano reported on Twitter this month that Rashford is considering his future at United.
90 mins have reported that Arsenal are among clubs keen to secure the services of the 24-year-old England striker.
“He doesn’t lead the line very well. And that’s one of the two qualities you need if you want to play in an Arteta team.
“Marcus would have to become a better player. They would have to pay a high salary and a decent transfer fee, so I don’t see that move at all.
“I could be wrong. I never think people can’t improve, it’s just ridiculous to think that.”
Marcus Rashford would make Arsenal better
In our opinion Rashford would make Arsenal a better team in attack.
Now, of course, we have to take into account the striker’s salary and the transfer fee Manchester United would ask for him.
However, should Rashford join Arsenal, we think he would be a good addition to Arteta’s team.
Yes, Rashford isn’t exactly a great number nine, but he could learn that role and improve as an attacker under Arteta.
In addition, the forward could play wide, allowing Gabriel Martinelli to act as number 9.
The United No. 10 scored 59 goals in 198 games in the Premier League so far in his career.
