According to report on Skysports.com, Arsenal and Manchester United have joined the battle, and now head the chase, to sign Ghanaian midfield sensation Anthony Annan.
The 22 year old spent last week on trial with Blackburn Rovers but that stint has seemingly alerted a host of other clubs to his availability. As a result, Rovers who were favorites to strike a deal with his Norwegian club Start, now look to have lost their advantage.
It is understood that both Arsenal and United have made firm enquiries and will have their people attendance when Annan features in the UEFA Cup in Norway on Thursday evening.
Annan is playing for Stabaek – the club he is currently on loan at from Start – against Rennes and it is alleged that over a dozen clubs are ready to check on him.
AC Milan, Atletico Madrid and Racing Santander were also keen to land the Ghana star, but he has his heart set on a move to England and it appears as if he will have a number of options.
Arsenal wanted to take the player on trial, but because of his commitments with Stabaek he could not spend more time in England after being with Blackburn.
