Arsenal and Chelsea in pursuit of Manchester United's £20m-rated who could be available in January

Both Chelsea and Arsenal are believed to be considering a move for Manchester United defender Luke Shaw, after the talented England international has struggled to find a place in Jose Mourinho's Man United starting eleven.

The 22-year-old has struggled through much of the last two seasons with injury, meaning that Ashley Young has taken his place at left-back.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Shaw's widely publicised fall-out with Mourinho has lead to the player being deemed surplus to requirements at Old Trafford, which has alerted Chelsea and Arsenal who could sign him for around £20m.

The ex-Southampton left-back has made just senior appearances for United this season, and will be eager to reignite his career.

As Chelsea look to strengthen their greatly fallen squad, a move to the Stamford Bridge could give them a brilliant cover in the position currently held-down by Marcos Alonso. Shaw played at Chelsea's development centre as a child, but he never managed a gain an academy spot. He has seven England caps, and will be determined to play for his country again.

He made a name for himself at Southampton, where he graduated from their prestigious youth academy and became a regular starter in the Premier League for the Saints.

Shaw joined Man United for £27m in 2014, becoming the most expensive teenager in world football. Mourinho is believed to be determined to bring new players in January, but is unlikely to be given the funds he wants until he sells some of his existing squad members.

Shaw is likely to be one of the first names on the Portuguese boss transfer list, and the tantalizing prospects of brightening his career of a bright English prospect could trigger a bidding war between the league's top teams.
