Arsenal have made a world-record offer to sign female football star, Alessia Russo from Manchester United, according to The Athletic.
NEWSBREAK reports that the Gunners are prepared to break the current world-record transfer fee in women’s football, which was set by Keira Walsh’s £400,000 move to Barcelona from Manchester City in 2022.

United are working on tying Russo to a new contract but are yet to come to an agreement with the forward. The Red Devils risk losing the 23-year-old for free when her deal expires at the end of the season.
Arsenal’s offer has not been accepted by United as of yet. The north London club are eager to strengthen in attack to provide goals in the absence of long-term absentees Vivianne Miedema and Beth Mead.
United are currently top of the Women’s Super League, while Arsenal sit three points behind them in third.
