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.
