1) Mats Hummels
The 25 year-old German defender is arguably one of the most coveted defenders in the world. A dying breed i.e top quality centre-halves – Hummels is one of a kind. A lynchpin of the victorious German national team – Hummels is rumoured to be utterly frustrated by the poor season Borussia Dortmund have been suffering from.
Arsenal are expected to move for Germany World Cup winner Mats Hummels in January – with Borussia Dortmund fearing the centre-back is ready to leave. Hummels is valued at around £30million and is also a target for Manchester United but sources in Germany believe the player would prefer a move to the Emirates. While Wenger has been keeping an eye on all developments in Hummels’ career who is currently side-lined by a foot injury; a January move to the Emirates seems unlikely.
