Arsenal fans are gloating here inside the Football Transfer Tavern after seeing the news in the Daily Mail – with the publication claiming that the the club are set to beat Manchester United to the signing of Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan.
The German International is arguably one of the most wanted defensive midfielders in the world, and it was thought here in the Tavern that Louis van Gaal’s side would snap up the midfielder.
However, the Gunners are interested in making a move for the 24-year-old star, and have subsequently made contact with the family of Ilkay Gundogan.
As our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern quips, Gundogan is undoubtedly one of the best players in his position in the world, and if Wenger could sign him up this summer, it would transform them into a serious force to be reckoned with!
Arsenal fans….. What do you make of this news? Would you like to see Gundogan at Arsenal next season? Let us know your thoughts and feelings in the comments below!
