Arsenal in advanced talks for Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels

Arsenal are close to a deal for Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels. The Daily Star says Arsenal and Manchester United are interested in signing the 25-year-old, who joined Dortmund in 2009.

It's believed that United have been leading the race to sign the former Bayern Munich star, but sources in Spain suggest that's no longer the case.

Recent reports claim that Arsenal are now in pole position to land the centre-back after holding 'advanced talks' with Dortmund.

Several sources suggest that Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has agreed a £31.5m deal for Hummels, and claim he will move to the Emirates in January.
