Arsenal linked with summer move for £20m midfield star

Arsenal have been linked with a summer move for £20 million-rated Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan, according to The Metro.

Gundogan is being targeted by Arsenal and Manchester United despite reports suggesting Dortmund want to sign him down to a new deal. But a move to the Premier League could be favourable as Dortmund are struggling to make the Champions League, sitting 10th in the Bundesliga.

Arsenal have been linked with a number of Europe’s top rated players, including the likes of Gonzalo Higuain, as manager Arsene Wenger is again expected to dip into the clubs funds this summer in an attempt to further strengthen the team to challenge for the Premier League title.

Gundogan has made 18 Bundesliga appearances so far this season, scoring three times with three assists, and at 24 could be an ideal replacement for Jack Wilshere, who has been linked with a move away from the club.

The German international already has a wealth of experience and after losing the 2013 Champions League final, will be hungry for success as his time in Germany could be drawing to a close.

Arsenal reportedly had an £18.4 million bid rejected in January but Dortmund’s poor season could see a move develop with the Gunners looking to be a strong force in Europe once again.

Is Ilkay Gundogan the right man for Arsenal and do they need sign the midfielder?
