Arsenal set for £16m transfer swoop as DM is at Dortmund exit door!

Arsenal fans could soon have something to smile about and ease our concerns. While there have been hundreds of interesting looking Arsenal transfer rumours in the football media, so far the only real action on that front has been about players leaving the club.

Lukas Podolski has gone to play for Inter Milan in Italy’s Serie A and Arsene Wenger has revealed that Yaya Sanogo could also be heading out of the club on a loan deal this month. But over a week into the January transfer window, we are still waiting for any signings coming in the other direction.

All that could be about to change though, as a Metro report claims that the Gunners could be poised to strike and take advantage of the contract stalemate between the German Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund and their midfield star Ilkay Gundogan. The report says that Arsenal may already have been in talks with the central midfield or his representatives and that things could happen very soon.

The Mirror has reported that Dortmund have given Gundogan an ultimatum and if he does not agree to what could be their final contract offer in the next few days, then they are prepared to cash in. There is talk about an offer of around £16 million being enough to bring the talented German to Arsenal. We’ll see Gooners….

    Is he a DM realy? But would be a good addition to the squad but still we need a DM.

    1. KickAssFan says:

      I just don’t get it!!! What’s bad about getting a proper DM? I like Gundogan, but I wish we could get a guy like him, Gustavo/Wanyama/ and a versatile CB.

      If wishes were horses…

      1. Hafiz Rahman says:

        yes gustavo….world class player

  2. royalman says:

    Speculations. Speculations and no facts. I thought this site will get authentic information before posting something. Always Metro, Mirror etc.

    1. cheeterspotter says:

      We don’t appear to have had much luck with our last 3 Germans.
      Poor travellers?
      Our system?
      Londons good life.?
      Over the hill?
      last one sounds about right or a mixture of all.

  6. tfemi79 says:

    We should get Reus gundogan sniderlin a solid defender to replace per and a keeper! We need competition in the team to make players like Ramsey and wild here wake up and play at their best! United got valdes when they have a top keeper city got bony when they have agureo dzeko jovetic and negredo on loan not to talk about Chelsea these are all top four contenders

    1. Hafiz Rahman says:

      reus, ozil carzola and rosicky rotating Acm position

      Gundogan, ramsay, wilshere and arteta rotating CM position…

      4 man rotation looks good…

      30man squad is required

      1. GunnerJack says:

        The limit is 25 players.

        1. Hafiz Rahman says:

          no limit no ffp no homegrown rules…

          chelsea is set to smash the ffp record and meet the asking price of messi

          1. CraigZWE says:

            As the house of Rahman demands of them.

            Let’s sack Wenger and send him to Chelsea, and in no time Messi Ronaldinho.

          2. ArseOverTit says:

            Give me a messed up messi over Joel Campbell any day if the week!

  7. Mk2013 says:

    Wenger is looking for a top, top player and he will get him at 11:59:59 on the last day of the transfer.

    1. CraigZWE says:

      Hahaha deluded. He won’t get anyone.

    2. vijaygunner says:

      on loan and he’d be injured

  8. davidnz says:

    4 new players for Arsenal on Monday
    DM B2B CAM and STR .
    Arteta Ramsey Ozil Wellbeck.

    1. CraigZWE says:

      And then Ox, Giroud and Sanchez set for their injuries. Maybe this is Wengers master plan to try and look half decent manager.

  9. davidnz says:

    DRB set for return on May 24
    v West Brom as a 93 min sub
    and win 6 yr contract extension.

  10. Uche Edochie says:

    ‘The metro claims that arsenal might be poised to strike….’ Sure. I hear that nonsense everyday but I never expected that we would write an article on it. There are maybe thirty similar rumours concerning different players. I I dont expect an article on daily baseless rumours on this site.

    1. ArseOverTit says:

      Yes, if anyone reads these posts please don’t do that!


    2. admin says:

      Hi Uche,you know we like to bring you ALL the Arsenal News and rumours….. wherever they come from!

  11. CraigZWE says:

    Wish there was a rumour that Barca want Jack Wilshire for £50 mil.

    I’d release him for free actually. He is Diby 2.0

    1. ArseOverTit says:

      Sack Wheelchair

  14. lil b gunner says:

    what makes you’ll think Wenger wants gundogan …if he wanted a player in DAT role he would have bought fabregas. get ur heads out of ur ass. Hafiz is d king of thumbs down lol

  15. Zapperkid says:

    Where is the guy that said something about totenham’s squad being better than ours and that chadli and Kane were world class? This is my answer to your post, spuds squad is good for a mid table team, not one of their players could get in our lineup bar Lloris. Nothing better than seeing the spuds losing to crystal palace 10 minutes ago 😀
