German International Ready To Snub Man Utd For Arsenal, Wenger Set To Table Bid
Kevin Grosskreutz is set to snub interest from Manchester United to seal a move to Arsenal as Arsene Wenger lines-up a formal bid for the Borussia Dortmund ace
With the January transfer window in full swing, managers are strengthening their squads ahead of the second half of the season, so we’ll bring you all the latest news and gossip. Today, Kevin Grosskreutz favours a move to Arsenal over Manchester United….
Kevin Grosskreutz is ready to snub interest from Manchester United to seal a move to Arsenal as Arsene Wenger lines-up a formal bid for the Borussia Dortmund ace, according to reports.
The Gunners are on the verge of completing their second signing of the January window with Gabriel Paulista expected to arrive from Villarreal, and the centre-back will follow Krystien Bielik in making the move to North London.
Wenger hinted at his press conference last week that Gabriel may not be his last signing this month and reports claim the Frenchman will bring in further reinforcements with Grosskreutz now believed to be his top target.
The German international has been at the Westfalonstadion since 2009 and has been a reliable regular in Jurgen Klopp’s side. However, the Express suggest that Arsenal are now set to offer him a new challenge and will make a formal move for the player before the window closes on February 2nd.
Manchester United are also understood to be interested in bringing Grosskreutz to England but the newspaper claims the 26-year-old will snub a move to Old Trafford as he wants to join Arsenal – the club he supported growing up.
Grosskreutz is a hugely versatile player as he’s capable of playing at right-back and anywhere across the midfield positions, so he’d certainly be a useful member of Wenger’s squad if he was to make the move to North London.
With just 18 months left on his contract, the Express believe he could be snapped up for just €5m (£3.7m), which would be an absolute bargain for a player of his quality in today’s over-inflated market, so I’m sure Arsenal fans will be hoping a deal can be agreed.
