Arsenal join Manchester United in £30m defender chase
Arsenal are ready to challenge Manchester United for the signing of £30m-rated Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels, according to the Daily Mirror.
The German centre-back, a World Cup winner in Brazil this summer, has also been linked with Barcelona for much of the summer, but may now be Arsene Wenger’s ideal replacement for the unsettled Thomas Vermaelen.
Widely regarded as one of the best defenders in the world, Hummels would signal another highly ambitious signing made by the Gunners in recent times.
