According to various Arsenal transfer rumours, Arsene Wenger could be set to add to the misery being suffered by the fans of the Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund this season by swooping in the January transfer window for two of the club’s star players.
Dortmund are languishing at the bottom of the Bundesliga table and despite beating the Gunners to top spot in our Champions League group, their draw for the next round is tougher than ours, with the Italian champions Juventus to get past.
That is why the German media think that Mats Hummels could be ready to call time on his eight year career in Dortmund, especially after recently revealing his frustration at the struggles the club is having this season. The 26-year old Germany international is one of the best centre backs in the world and Arsenal could certainly do with that to help our leaky defence, but it is thought that Man United are also very keen.
The other Dortmund player that could be heading to north London soon is their central midfielder Ilkay Gundogan, after the Daily Express reported that the 24-year old is not going to extend his current contract and does fancy a move to the Premier League.
Gundogan said, “Playing outside Germany is one of my big goals.
“If one day I leave here, I’d like to play in Spain or for one of the big teams in England.”
He is also being linked with Man United though and is nit the out an out defensive midfielder that many Arsenal fans are hoping for. But he is more like Mikel Arteta and that seems to be the sort of player that Wenger likes. So could Arsenal be set for a stunning double transfer swoop on beleaguered Dortmund? And would you be happy with Hummels and Gundogan?
