European pass-master to reject Arsenal for Man United

Ilkay Gundogan is ready to spurn interest from Arsenal and sign for Manchester United this summer, according to reports from Der Westen.

The Borussia Dortmund playmaker is believed to be a top target for the Gunners, who have been tracking him for some time.

However, United are also in the race ahead of what’s likely to be a busy transfer window in the North West, with Gundogan being eyed as a potential long-term replacement for midfield metronome, Michael Carrick.

And reports now claim that despite talks with Arsenal and Manchester City having taken place, the 24-year-old has his heart set on joining Louis van Gaal’s side.

Gundogan looks likely to follow manager Jurgen Klopp out of the Dortmund exit door in a few months’ time, with the deep lying pass-master’s current contract due to expire in 2016.

BVB want to keep their man, but selling to bring in some cash rather than risking a free transfer is more appealing to the Bundesliga giants.
