Manchester United will allow central defender and reported Arsenal transfer target Eric Bailly to depart in January, report the British daily broadsheet newspaper Telegraph.

The Gunners have been connected with signing the centre-back in the latest months, as Unai Emery looks to bring fresh legs into his back-line.

Eric has fallen completely out of favour under manager Jose Mourinho, not even making the matchday squad in last weekend’s 3-1 defeat to Manchester City.

His last appearance came versus Newcastle United in early October, when Eric was substituted after just 19 minutes.

Gunners are not the only side thought to be keeping a close eye on the situation, with north London rivals Tottenham also in the running for his signature

Bailly arrived at Manchester United with a big reputation in 2016, with many seeing Bailly as a key defender for years to come.

His displays have proved erratic, though, and his relationship with Jose Mourinho appears to have soured.

The Ivory Coast international star is still just 24 years of age, however, and he has the ability to be a good signing for the north London giants.
