Arsenal are considering a shock move for Manchester United’s John O’Shea.

The Gunners are shopping around for defensive cover as they are on the verge of selling Gael Clichy to Manchester City for £7million.

Bolton’s Gary Cahill remains top of Arsenal’s wish list, but it is not yet clear if Arsene Wenger will shell out £17m.

Versatile O’Shea, 30, was told this summer that he can leave United after 12 years.

The Republic of Ireland international is not interested in joining Sunderland, who expressed interest a fortnight ago and also want United’s Darron Gibson.

But O’Shea has been made aware of Arsenal’s interest and sources close to the player say he will consider a move to London.

O’Shea was initially going to be a makeweight in a Manchester United push to lure Arsenal ace Samir Nasri to Old Trafford.

But Manchester City last night joined the hunt for the Frenchman, although Arsenal do not want to lose him to a top-four rival.

But with Wenger cutting his loses on Clichy who only had a year left on his contract, the path is still clear for an approach for O’Shea.
