Arsenal are weighing up the possibility of making a move for Hertha Berlin midfielder Arne Maier, according to reports in the Sun.

The 19-year-old has been touted as the ‘new Toni Kroos’ following his performances in defensive midfield so far this season. Maier has played 16 times already this term.

It is understood that the Gunners could face competition for the prospect’s signature from Manchester United, should they choose to pursue a deal for him.

Scouts from both Arsenal and United are expected to travel Germany next weekend to watch Maier as his side come up against Stuttgart in the Bundesliga.
