Wenger looking at German trio

Published Add your comment

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger is rumoured to be interested in adding three more Germans to his squad, joining the recently added, Mesut Ozil, according to the Daily Mail.

Ozil became the most expensive German footballer when he made the £42.4million move to the Gunners on deadline day, and could persuade Germany's Marco Reus, Ilkay Gundogan, and Lars Bender, to join him in north London.

Wenger has signed five German footballers in the past five years; Per Mertesacker, Lukas Podolski, Thomas Eisfeld, Serge Gnabry, and Ozil.

By January, it could be eight. The Arsenal manager has already enhanced his scouting system in Germany, and is reportedly tracking a lengthy list of Bundesliga stars.

Arsenal had a bid of £18.5million rejected from Bayer Leverkusen for Lars Bender, in the summer, but I don't believe he's called it off.

The Bender brothers have shown their talent, and Wenger could be persuaded to switch his attention to Dortmund's Sven Bender, if Leverkusen refuse to negotiate.

Dortmund's Gundogan and Reus are also on the Frenchman's radar, but will cost at least £20million each, but with the marquee signing of Mesut Ozil, Wenger may be willing to spend.
