The Gunners are closing in on a £31.5m deal to bring the German international to the Emirates Stadium, in what would go down as another majorly ambitious deal to follow on from recent purchases of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.
United have also been desperate to land the World Cup winner, but look likely to miss out as talks for him to join Arsenal are said to be at an advanced stage.
Arsenal need strengthening in defence, and look ready to spend big to do so, with Arsene Wenger making this world class stopper his top target in that position.
