Arsenal to bid for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Sven Bender

Arsenal are reviving their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund midfielder Sven Bender. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is in the market for a new central midfield signing this summer.

The Mail on Sunday says Arsenal have previously been interested in Bender's twin brother, Lars, and bid £18m for him last summer, only to be turned down by Bayer Leverkusen.

Lars has since signed a new contract and is currently injured but Arsenal hope they can lure Sven from Dortmund with a £15m bid after he failed to make the Germany World Cup squad.
