Borussia Dortmund captain Mats Hummels has been attracting interest from Europes best clubs for a number of years. He is widely regarded as one of the best centre-backs in both club and international football.

At just 25, Hummels still has a lot of room to improve his game, and is considered number one target for both Arsenal and Manchester United.


Germany international Hummels, who was a key player during the 2014 World Cup, is expected to follow in the footsteps of former Dortmund players Lewandowski and Götze in a move away from the Westfalenstadion. With Klopp expected to also lose Marco Reus, the mass exodus may be enough to convince the club captain to relocate also.

At 6ft 3', Mats Hummels is certainly no push over, he wins most aerial duels and is not an easy man to shrug off the ball. His most appealing talent, certainly to Arsenal at last, is his incredible ability on the ball. He is widely known for his brilliant distribution of the ball, and his ability to feed a striker from half way across the pitch.

A natural leader on the pitch, Hummels is the ideal candidate for both Manchester Utd and Arsenal. Both clubs are in dire need of a world class centre-half, with these two former giants of the English game finding themselves sliding down the table.

As for the red half of Manchester, bringing in Hummels may actually make people take the 'We can still win the league' talk seriously.

Although many would agree that Manchester United need more than just one centre-back, bringing Hummels could well push them on to their former glory.
