According to German football publication Kicker, Arsenal are set to renew their interest in Dortmund defensive midfielder Ilkay Gundogan in the summer.

Turned Down

The Gunners reportedly had a bid of around £18.4million turned for the Germany international in the January transfer window, but could put in an increased bid to sign the player who has been consistently linked with a move to north London for the past few years.


Despite an injury-hit few seasons with the German giants, Gundogan is still highly-regarded by some of Europe’s biggest clubs. Should the 24-year-old move on then Arsenal could face stiff competition from the likes of Manchester United and Barcelona for his signature.

West Ham officials appear to be having second thoughts about turning Carl Jenkinson’s loan deal into permanent move at the end of the season, according to the latest reports.

The Hammers have been impressed by the standard of the player’s performances since arriving at Boleyn Ground and not so long ago it looked as though they will be attempting to make his stay permanent.

However, West Ham appear to be showing interest in former player Glen Johnson and may decide to bring the former England international to Boleyn Ground instead. This would definitely save the club some cash as the 30-year-old will be available on a free transfer, but will also cause problems for Carl Jenkinson and Arsenal.
