Arsenal back in bid for Matthias Ginter

Posted on August 04, 2013 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal have reportedly been in the market for German U21 international Matthias Ginter before, but it does appear they are renewing their interest in the Freiburg player.

According to The Sun, Arsenal are close to sealing a deal to sign the 19-year old centre-back. After the side loaned out Francis Coquelin to Freiburg, it was expected that the German league side would sell Ginter as per the arrangement. However, he’s yet to leave, but could be on his way to the Emirates soon.

Last season, Ginter made 23 Bundesliga appearances, scoring once. The 6 foot 1 German can also play as a midfielder.

His asking price is around £6M – which has reportedly been matched by the Gunners.

Manager Arsene Wenger has been tracking the 19-year old for a long period of time, but Arsenal’s wait for a big-money signing continues.

With one eye on the 2014 World Cup, Ginter eyes the chance of making the senior national team, and playing for a team of Arsenal’s stature would go a long way to achieving that.

Arsenal fans await the news if Ginter is confirmed an Arsenal player in the coming week, or if the reports of a deal having been agreed is dismissed as pure fabrication.

    Sorry but i dont feel this signing is gonna cut it with the fans. a 19 year old defender or holding midfielder is not gonna strengthen this team. Yet another prospect for the future alongside sanogo. The fans want a winning team now and i am soooo sick of having to wait on players to become world class.
    That would be a team of potential in
    ….ramsey ox gnabry sanogo gibbs jenkinson ginter
    Not gonna win titles with a squad of young boys playing against the men in man city , man utd or chelsea. we will just be pushed aside again this season and made to look soft.
    Spurs have a better team than us with two more signings and we are buying more boys.
    Fucking disgrace how wenger continues to act. spitting in the fans face is how i would describe it
