Arsenal will have to widen their search for Bacary Sagna's replacement after German international Sebastian Jung snubbed interest from across Europe to sign for Wolfsburg.
Jung has been tracked by the Gunners across five seasons for Eintracht Frankfurt, where the starlet has developed a reputation as one of the continent's most exciting young full-backs.
The 23-year-old was linked with a £7m move to Arsenal as early as last month, but Wolfsburg have beaten the Gunners to it and secured an early transfer coup after confirming Jung's signature on a four-year deal earlier today.
Wolfsburg's newest star only made his Germany debut against Poland last week and still has an outside chance of being included among the 23-man World Cup squad, completing quite a fortnight by confirming a move to a side with aspirations of earning a place among the Bundesliga's elite next season.
For Gunners boss Arsene Wenger it looks like Ligue 1 powerhouse Serge Aurier will now have to take centre-stage in the quest to replace Sagna, who looks all set to sign for Premier League rivals Manchester City this summer.
Sagna is currently in talks with City chiefs and is free to become the latest star to swap the Etihad for the Emirates on a Bosman free, but after seven seasons at Arsenal the French international will at least leave with the respect of Gunners and and an FA Cup winners medal in his collection.
