There’s a small contingent of German internationals at the Emirates and it’s easy to understand why.
German football’s stock is rapidly increasing, as the Bundesliga begins to take Europe by storm, potentially ushering in an era of German dominance on the continent, while the national team have quickly emerged among the favourites to clinch the World Cup in Brazil.
Being now a hotbed of young, exceptional talents, on lesser wages than the market rates in England, Premier League clubs are keen to get a bit of the action, and lure German stars over to our top flight.
Including Arsenal, who already have Per Mertesacker, Lukas Podolski and Mesut Ozil in their ranks, and are expected to expand their small cast of former Bundesliga boys in the near future.
With that in mind, we’ve come up with a list of SIX players from the German top flight Arsene Wenger should strongly consider snapping up.
