Reports from Germany claim that Arsenal will sign Benedikt Howedes from Schalke in the summer.
Howedes was part of the Germany side that won the World Cup in 2014 and is the captain of Schalke. A versatile defender, he is able to play as a centre-back or full-back.
By the summer the 27-year old will have only one year left on his contract and has a release clause of just £9m. Watch him in action below.
