Arsenal boss Wenger offers £15M for Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Lars Bender

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is launching a bid for Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Lars Bender. The Mirror says Wenger wants a holding midfielder, and the Gunners have gone back to their first choice in that position and want to do a deal for Bender.

The Londoners have tracked the Bayer Leverkusen midfielder, 25, for more than a year and are hoping to now get their man for £15m.

Leverkusen are reluctant to sell but Arsenal are hoping they can lure him with a big contract and the offer of Champions League football.
