A select round-up of the latest news relating to Arsenal…
Arsenal are reportedly interested in Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels.
The Sunday Mirror claims the Gunners are ready to go head to head with Manchester United for the German international, with an alleged belief that the player could leave for a fee in the region of £30million.
Given the centre-back pairing at Arsenal’s disposal, if Hummels did arrive at the Emirates it would leave one quality centre-back lacking in game-time, given the impressive partnership of Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker.
Sky Sport Italia claim the Serie A club want to take the Costa Rican international on loan next season, despite Arsene Wenger’s intimation that the player will remain in North London for the upcoming campaign.
As a result, Barcelona are said to be favourites for the Belgian defender’s signature.
