Could another German be heading to Arsenal?

Published Add your comment

Arsenal look to continue their trend by targeting young German midfielder Patrick Herrmann from Borussia Monchengladbach, according to talkSPORT.

The 22-year-old would join Mesut Ozil, Per Mertesacker, Lukas Podolski, Thomas Eisfeld and Serge Gnabry on the list of fellow German players at Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger would love to continue Arsenal's new spending spree after capturing Ozil on the last day of the last transfer window.

The North London side now look like genuine title contenders, having not won the Premier League since 2004.

Herrmann is tipped to have a very bright future ahead of him but a bid of £13m may be enough to prize him away from the Bundesliga club.

Juventus have also shown plenty of interest.

In recent times, the midfielder has been compared to Borussia Dortmund midfielder Marco Reus who joined the 2012 champions from Monchengladbach.

Herrmann is an exciting and quick right midfielder and will provide stiff competition for the likes of Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who have suffered with injuries.

Arsenal have been linked with the under-21 international since 2011 but must now step up their approach for the young midfielder.

Tottenham Hotspur reportedly tried to sign the young German in the summer.

Herrmann has enjoyed a good start to this season's league campaign, scoring once and making two assists with Monchengladbach sitting fourth in the table.
