Manchester United now want to sign ‘amazing’ 23-year-old who Arsenal have been scouting

Manchester United have reportedly entered the race to sign Galatasaray defender Sacha Boey – a player Arsenal have been scouting recently.

That’s according to Turkish outlet Sporx, which claims that Sacha Boey is set to leave Galatasaray at the end of the season. 

Arsenal have long been credited with an interest in Boey as Mikel Arteta searches for extra depth at right-back.

Indeed, Turkish Football claimed that Arsenal watched Boey in action as Galatasaray beat Manchester United 3-2 at Old Trafford last month.

And it seems that Boey’s performances for the Turkish outfit haven’t gone unnoticed by Erik ten Hag either.

Man United keen on Arsenal target Sacha Boey
Sporx reports that three Premier League clubs have added Boey to their list of potential targets, including United.

Burnley and Brighton have also started to follow the French right-back closely, while Arsenal have been long-term admirers.

It’s noted that Boey is likely to leave the Turkish giants at the end of the season, with Galatasaray set to fetch a ‘high fee’ for the full-back.

Of course, Arsenal snapped up Jurrien Timber from Ajax over the summer but the Dutchman picked up a serious injury on his Premier League debut.

Nevertheless, it would be a surprise to see the Gunners dip back into the market for another right-back. Boey has been lauded as an ‘amazing’ defender and at just 23, he looks set for a bright future ahead of him. 

Yet, Arsenal already have Ben White, who has excelled in the position, while Takehiro Tomiyasu can also cover at right-back.

As for United, their defensive issues have been well-documented this season as Ten Hag’s backline has been hit with several injuries.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is currently sidelined and Diogo Dalot has filled in for the time being. But a move for Boey in January could make sense for the Red Devils as they do lack quality in the position.
