Manchester United Ready Bid For Long-Term Arsenal Midfield Target
According to the Metro, Manchester United are getting ready to pounce on Dortmund contract rebel and long-term Arsenal target Ilkay Gundogan. The German international has been plagued with injury of late, but is still regarded as one of the best deep-lying playmakers in the game.
Gundogan is stalling on a contract extension as Dortmund struggle to convince him that they are a club on the up. Although the 24-year-old has long been linked to Arsenal, but with the rise of Coquelin and the signing of Bielik they seem less interested thus clearing the way for Manchester United.
United are reportedly willing to pay up to £20million for Gundogan and Louis van Gaal stated earlier this week that he's look to bring in a central midfielder during the summer.
