Marcus Rashford has been tipped to resurrect his career at Arsenal - just like Kai Havertz did - if he were to make the move to the Emirates this summer.

Rashford’s future at United has been increasingly called into question in recent months after an up-and-down season for the winger.

Rashford’s relationship with Erik ten Hag has also been reported to not be perfect by some sections of the media.

As a result, the media have linked Rashford with a potential transfer away from Man Utd this summer.

These calls have grown louder after Rashford was left out of England’s squad for Euro 2024.

In recent weeks Arsenal have been put forward as a possible destination for the 26-year-old.

And former Arsenal star Emmanuel Petit believes that Rashford can resurrect his career at the Emirates just like Kai Havertz did.

What did Petit say?

“I know Kai Havertz has improved massively at Arsenal, but it’s difficult to say whether Arteta could do the same with Rashford if he moved to the club,” said Petit, who was speaking on behalf of BoyleSports, who offer the latest Euro 2024 betting.

“However, I have no doubt that Rashford needs a new start and I think Arsenal could be perfect for him.

“We all know the quality of Rashford for what he’s done in years at Man United, but everyone questioned Havertz and his position when he moved from Chelsea.

“Would Rashford be good at Arsenal? Give me the paper, and let me sign it for him right now!

“Rashford in a good environment would be incredible for the Gunners as they all look miserable at United. I saw what happened with the fan and I understand his frustration, so if Rashford wants to leave, he’s more than welcome at Arsenal and the door is open for him.

“Havertz was in a strange environment at Chelsea and he wasn’t happy, but he has smiled at Arsenal and I can finally see his teeth - I want that for Rashford.”

Arsenal signed Havertz from Chelsea for €75 million (£65m) last summer. That made him the third most expensive signing in the club’s history.

Havertz had largely struggled in two years at Chelsea but after a slow start he has proved to be a revelation at Arsenal.

He scored 14 goals and contributed seven assists as Arsenal finished second by two points behind Man City.
