Borussia Dortmund midfielder and Arsenal target Kevin Großkreutz recently admitted that he would welcome a big-money move to The Emirates , according to The Daily Mail.
The 23-year-old attacking midfielder/winger, who was being monitored by Arsenal chief scout Steve Rowley against Olympiakos over a week ago, is under contract with the Bundesliga side until 2014.
However, his agent Konstantin Liolios has made it clear to Großkreutz that Arsene Wenger has expressed an interest in his services, which left the German international recently stating:
‘If I do ever leave Dortmund, I would like to go to the Premier League in England, and my favourite club there is Arsenal.’
Although I don’t believe we are in desperate need of adding another winger to our squad, Großkreutz does look a good player – from what I’ve seen of him of course. He is strong, quick, can use both feet and has the ability to get past defenders. I for one would welcome him at The Emirates, if a move occurs.
However, we are yet to see any real development in what can only be constituted as a rumour at this time. But surely there will be some form of movement following Großkreutz’s latest words.
