Arsenal target dismisses Dortmund transfer talk

Published Add your comment

Arsenal target Matthias Ginter has dismissed speculation linking him with a January move to Borussia Dortmund, insisting he is happy at Freiburg, reports Sky Sports.

The 19-year-old defender - who can also operate in midfield - was thought to be on his way to the Premier League during the summer, but the Bundesliga club refused to sell.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is a known admirer of Ginter, and was credited with an interest in bringing the talented teenager to the Emirates Stadium.

However, any hope Arsenal or new suitors Dortmund might have had of securing the player's signature have now been dashed after the Germany U21 international reiterated his desire to remain at the Mage Solar Stadion for the foreseeable future.

"I have told people many times I am very much at home at Freiburg," he said in an interview with radio station. "I enjoy it here.

"I have said this already last summer, on many occasions. This is why I have stayed on at Freiburg and that's why there is no room for any speculation."

Coincidentally, Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund face each other in the Champions League tomorrow night, with the winner of the Group F clash likely to go top of the table.
