Arsenal transfer news
The Red Devils are chasing signings at the back this winter after some unconvincing performances in that department throughout the season so far, and look to be set to bid for two Bundesliga-based players to strengthen in that area.
Both players are also wanted by Arsenal, but it is thought that Louis van Gaal will now step up his efforts for these two big-name centre-backs:
1) Mats Hummels (Borussia Dortmund)
First on United’s list is long-time target Mats Hummels. The Borussia Dortmund star is surely set to make a big move before long and may now be heading to Old Trafford this season.
