Arsenal are chasing Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan. The Daily Star Sunday says he's also in the sights of Spanish champions Barcelona, while Manchester United had him on their wanted list last summer.

Dortmund rate him in the £25million bracket and will be reluctant to sell at anything lower.

Arsenal's ace card is already having a large German contingent in the likes of Mesut Ozil, Per Mertesacker, Lukas Podolski and Serge Gnabry who could be used to sway their compatriot.
