The name of Arsenal is never far away from the transfer rumours section of the media—especially as summer fast approaches—and the Gunners have been linked with a huge name in recent days; that of Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney.
Rooney's future was already coming under the spotlight of speculation in recent weeks, and that has now intensified with the news that United boss Alex Ferguson is retiring and David Moyes being chosen as his successor. This has led some in the media to suggest that Rooney is on his way out—and Arsenal are keen suitors (via Wayne Veysey of Goal.com).
The forward has a big name and a big price tag, but is Arsenal the right destination for him? The Gunners must spend to reinforce their squad this summer, but is Rooney the right player for them?
Here are the tactical, transfer and general make-or-break aspects of this particular rumour.
