Arsenal are being linked with a big-money move for accomplished Germany central defender, Mats Hummels. The report comes from The Daily Express, who suggest the Gunners are ready to bid £17.6 million to land the highly-rated Borussia Dortmund stopper.
This rumour surfaces alongside yestrday's equally outlandish link to Fiorentina attacker Stevan Jovetic. It seems that the press is becoming more anxious about Arsenal's lack of transfer activity than many Gunners' fans.
That's not to say that a move for Hummels wouldn't be welcome. He is one of the most highly regarded central defenders in the European game. Powerful and combative, Hummels would add the element of aggression that is lacking from Arsenal's existing back four.
