Wenger declares interest in Rooney

Arsene Wenger has indicated that Arsenal would be interested in signing Wayne Rooney if it were possible.

The Manchester United forward asked for a transfer near the end of last season and it is unclear whether he figures in David Moyes' plans at Old Trafford.

"Rooney could be an interesting player for everybody in the world, who would turn him down?" Wenger told Al Jazeera. "David Moyes' first challenge is to go in to Manchester and bridge the gap between him and Rooney. If that is feasible or not depends on his personality and if Rooney bears a grudge or not we will see. It will be interesting to see how that will be handled."
