Arsenal eyes Borussia Dortmund duo Hummels and Gundogan

Arsene Wenger is eyeing a double raid on Borussia Dortmund.

The Gunners boss has been hotly tipped with a swoop for centre-back Mats Hummels for months.

And the Frenchman is now set to follow up that up with a bid for defensive midfielder Ilkay Gundogan.

Hummels is edging closer to an exit from the German giants after refusing to commit his future to the club.

The World Cup-winning defender has also revealed he's had offers to leave Dortmund.
He said: "I have gotten offers from different clubs ever since I have been with Dortmund.

"I have always decided not to leave. I think I have made some good decisions and I want to make those in the future as well.

“I have never said I will stay until 2024 or 2030 or whenever.

“But I have stayed until today. I will stick to my way of not promising anything and maybe leave someday instead of saying I will stay forever and then leave all of a sudden.

“I am not really known as a globetrotter. I have been with two clubs in 26 years. Loyalty is important to me."
Manchester United are also in the race to land Hummels, who is likely to cost at least £35m.

Another player on Arsenal's radar is Dortmund midfielder Gundogan.
