Breaking News : Arsenal Set To Offer £25 Million For The Service Of German International Midfielder

Ilkay-Gundogan-580x362

Arsenal are set to bid for Borussia Dortmund star, Ilkay Gundogan, according to SportsDirectNews.com. The news website reports that Arsenal are preparing to bid around £25 million for the central midfielder. The 22 year old, who played a huge part in Dortmund’s run to the Champions League final, is looked upon by the Gunners as the defensive midfielder that they need. Gundogan is not only a great passer of the ball, but also does not shy away from a tackle, making him a perfect player for the DM.

Ilkay Gundogan is regarded in Germany as the replacement for Bastian Schweinsteiger for the national team, showing the expectations from him in his homeland, and there are many clubs linked to his signature this summer. Gundogan’s current contract ends in 2015 so should be available for a cheaper amount.

Real Madrid were earlier in the summer reportedly close to signing the powerful midfielder before signing Asier Illarramendi from Real Sociedad in £34m deal.
Meanwhile, Luis Suarez has broken his silence on his transfer saga to Arsenal, and told the Guardian that Liverpool had promised to let him go this season, if they failed to qualify for the Champions League, and if a bid over £40m came in, to which Liverpool obviously disagree.

He also said that At 26 years of age, it is his right to play in the Champions League, against Europe’s best players, and that he has shown enough loyalty to the club by sticking on for one more year, after a Champions League club had bid for him at the start of last season. He also said that he has proven his loyalty to the Liverpool fans with his performances on the pitch. He has been left out of Liverpool’s squad against Valarenga, with a suspected foot injury.

  1. Dortmund can never let such a player leave the club. So stop fucking us, if you have nothing to write home about stop the rot about this fake transfer story. Wenger lost his brains when he discovered that he can make money by selling players than winning a trophy or scoring goals. No wonder he is bringing players who are on free transfers. Those players are not wanted anywhere in Europe including clubs from Africa. It is simply stupid..of Wenger to make us think we can win the EPL with such players.

  2. WHY is arsenal wasting time going after players they can’t get. When players they could get sign deals with direct competition is not in the league but in the CL. Arsenal need to stop looking to sign players already at big clubs (or already in the CL) and start looking for top players looking to make that first move to a CL side. Spurs got it right when they sign Paulinho. And the chance for Suarez although a big goal scorer is great what Arsenal need (and have needed for some time that is why they lost RVP as we had a 30plus goal scorer and it was not enough to win the league) Is Better Midfield both defensive and attacking. AND depth in defense on injury and we have a shambles in defense. the players that could make the difference are out there and available to sign but Arsenal keep looking in the wrong places and not addressing the true needs (Just watch the 5-7 Reading cup match to see what is wrong with Arsenal Sure once Arshavin and Walcott and Giroud came in the goals started going Arsenals way but they let in 5 vs reading and were down 4 before scoring 1) That is pathetic. and when it comes to stopping that 5 goals against nothing has changed.
