Mats Hummels was one of the best centre-backs at the World Cup, but even prior to the tournament in Brazil starting, the German international was on the radar of a host of clubs, including Manchester United.
Hummels has been a key figure in the Borussia Dortmund team over the past few seasons, helping them to back-to-back Bundesliga titles and a trip to the Champions League final. Now he’s cemented his place as one of the world’s best following his World Cup win in Brazil.
Arsenal would surely love to be one of the club’s in contention for the German’s signature. Wenger may have his go-to first-choice pairing in Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny, but Hummels would add the kind of quality in depth that hasn’t always been present with Thomas Vermaelen.
