ARSENAL have put together a package they hope can convince Wayne Rooney to join them from Manchester United.

Rooney is set to meet new United boss David Moyes to discuss his future as soon as possible after the Scot officially starts work on Monday.

But the Gunners are convinced they have a realistic chance of persuading the England striker to join their revolution.

The Emirates hierarchy feel they need to start joining the big boys when it comes to transfers, especially if they want to persuade boss Arsene Wenger to sign an extension, with his contract ending next summer and Paris St-Germain interested in his services.

It’s understood Wenger and Arsenal would like to see a dream partnership of Real Madrid’s Gonzalo Higuain as a central striker with Rooney playing behind him.
