Bourussia Dortmund’s dynamic midfielder Ilkay Gundogan is subject to a great transfer tussle between Manchester United and Arsenal and as per the latest reports from Sports Bild, it is believed that Arsenal have gained the advantage in race to sign Gundogan after it was revealed that Arsenal have held discussions with Gundogan’s family.

Manchester United were tipped to sign the German international after he announced that, he will not be extending his contract with Dortmund but in recent weeks, United have grown concerned about Gundogan’s injury worries.

Man United’s hesitations have opened the doors for Arsenal to snick in and try to convince Gundogan to sign for the North London club.

Arsene Wenger is battling the situation of his midfield after Matheu Flamini and Thomas Rosicky seem to be heading out of the club and Mikel Arteta’s constant decline in form is becoming an issue for the club.

Gundogan is valued at £25million by the German club and are awaiting an officially bid from either Arsenal or Man United in irder to let the player leave.

Ilkay Gundogan appears to be the ideal midfield signing, Arsene Wenger can have at the moment as Gundogan is dynamic, attack minded and a complete box-to-box player which Wenger seems to favor in his playing 11.

Arsenal’s direct approach to Gndogans family could prove to be vital in their attempts to sign the player as Atletico Madrid are also interested in the services of Gundogan, who will quit Bundesliga and move abroad to continue playing his football.
