Report: Arsenal interested in Borussia Dortmund midfielder Julian Weigl

Arsenal Emirates

The youngster has impressed for Thomas Tuchel's side this season.

Arsenal are monitoring Borussia Dortmund youngster Julian Weigl as a potential transfer target this summer, reports TuttoMercatoWeb.

The young midfielder has been an ever present for Thomas Tuchel’s side this season, with 34 appearances in the Bundesliga and Europa League to his name so far.

He has impressed as well, slotting into the Dortmund midfield and looking composed given he is just 20-years-old.

His performances have not gone unnoticed either, with the Gunners in particular having watched him throughout this season.

His passing style would suit the way Arsenal have always tried to adopt, and Wenger is willing to hand the youngster the keys to his midfield, according to the TuttoMercatoWeb report.

They are now willing to take their interest to the next level by making a bid for his services this summer, although as yet a price tag is unknown.

It would likely be a large one, with Dortmund sure to be unwilling to sell one of their prize assets any time soon.

Indeed, Weigl could be set for an increased role in the side next season if star midfielder Ilkay Gundogan completes a move to Manchester City as the Guardian reports.
