Arsenal are still very much interested in signing Young German versatile player FC Freiburg’s Matthias Ginter according to various reports in the German media this morning. Ginter was just last week rumoured to be close to joining Arsenal but his club president denied such insinuations.
But SC Freiburg chief Jochen Saier clearly said that he is not for sale.
“This is pure rubbish! We have not received any inquiries (from Arsenal) and we are not thinking about anything that has to do with this.
“Matthias Ginter is a very important part of Freiburg.
Jochen Saier talking to the press in regards to the Ginter to Arsenal rumours.
However, the German press believe Arsenal have not given up hope of signing the young midfielder. They claim Arsenal are prepared to test Jochen Saier and Freiburg resolve with a bid of £8 Million which they believe will be good enough to tempt Freiburg into selling as Ginter’s contract will expire in the summer of 2015.
