Ilkay Gundogan: Perfect for the Premier League

Borussia Dortmund's young midfielder, Ilkay Gundogan, might eventually come to the Premier League, as top clubs like Manchester United and Arsenal have shown interest in the star.

Gundogan's style of play might suit the extremely aerial style of English football, as the German international loves to play long balls from his own half to open up his opponents. With prolific aerial footballers in England, Gundogan's quality long balls could be met with spectacular finishes. That would be terrifying to say the least.

Other than long balls, Gundogan has excellent dribbling and finishing as well. In the Premier League, a midfielder is directly involved and is expected to take chances to put his team ahead of the opponent.

With his exceptional expertise in that department, he could be lethal and a goal poaching midfielder in the Premier League.

The only weakness that Gundogan might have is his aerial duels. He is not that strong in the air, and he might have a hard time with that if he comes to England. The Premier League is very physically demanding, and aerial duels play a big part in England.

However, being just 22 years of age, Gundogan will have a lot of time to establish himself in England, just like he has over in Germany. 

I think he would be a fantastic signing for either United or Arsenal, if Klopp will allow him to leave. 

With seven international caps and one goal, along with four club goals last season, Gundogan will be the real deal.
