Manchester United closing in on £20m Arsenal target

Manchester United are on the verge of completing a deal for Borussia Dortmund star Ilkay Gungodan in the upcoming window, according to reports from the Metro.

The 24-year-old has been tracked by manager Louis van Gaal ever since the previous summer, and with Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp announcing his departure, he could follow suit.

United are in need of another central midfielder, with striker Wayne Rooney recently being forced to play Michael Carrick’s role in the 1-0 defeat to league leaders Chelsea.

Arsenal have also been monitoring the situation of the Germany international, but Gundogan is being tipped to pick a move to Old Trafford over a switch to the Emirates.

The news of Jurgen Klopp deciding to leave the Bundesliga outfit at the end of the season has caused a number of sides to prepare a raid of the club’s stars.

Centre-back Mats Hummels is also being linked with an exit, as the Blues are hoping to beat the Red Devils to his signature.
