Dortmund's woes set to continue.

According to the Daily Express, Arsene Wenger is looking to beat Louis van Gaal to the signing of Mats Hummels this January.

Arsenal have been crying out for a quality centre back all season, and have now made the German defender a top priority when the transfer window opens. Nonetheless, Man United have been pursuing Hummels for some time, and the £47 million asking price could prove problematic for the Gunners.

The World Cup winner has criticised Borussia Dortmund on a number of occasions this season, recently labeling the club 'pathetic' with his side sitting bottom of the Bundesliga.
