The Premier League duo are keeping tabs on Michu.
Swansea City forward Michu has emerged as a surprise transfer target for both Arsenal and Liverpool this summer, according to the Daily Express.
The Spaniard joined the Swans from Rayo Vallecano in 2012 for £2m and went onto score 18 goals in his maiden season with the club, in which they won their first ever major trophy be lifting the League Cup.
As a result the 28-year-old was widely touted as the bargain of the year in the English top tier and many sides were thinking about making a move for the attacker.
As it was the Welsh club retained his services, but Michu’s reputation has waned in 2013/14 as the Spain international has spent the majority of the campaign on the sidelines due to injury – managing just 24 appearances in all competitions.
Club record signing Wilfried Bony has filled the void brilliantly with 16 Premier League strikes, but it is still the Spanish star that both the Gunners and the Reds want.
Yet manager at the Liberty Stadium Garry Monk has said that he will do everything he can to ensure Michu stays in south Wales.
“He has definitely not been put up for sale by anyone at this club, me, the chairman or anyone,” Monk said.
“Our only discussion about Michu is getting him back to fitness and making sure he’s on the pitch for Swansea and scoring goals.
“He’s a goalscorer, our top scorer two seasons ago, so that’s not something you dismiss very lightly. We want him here at the club.”
Both Arsene Wenger and Brendan Rodgers are looking for support in attack, with the former saying too much reliance has been put on Olivier Giroud and the latter looking to strengthen his squad following a return to the Champions League after a five year absence.
With Michu being able to play as either a No.10 or as a striker, it’s perhaps not so surprising that they are keeping tabs on him.
