Arsenal have made a late move for Borussia Monchengladbach goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen.

The Daily Star says Arsene Wenger wanted the highly-rated German international at the Emirates to challenge Wojciech Szczesny.

The Gunners have a strong contingent of German stars with Mesut Ozil, Per Mertesacker and Serge Gnabry all starring - but the lure of La Liga has proved too much for Ter Stegen.

He has penned a pre-contract agreement with Barca and will make an £8.5m move at the end of the season, according to reports in Germany.
