The 23 year old played a pivotal role in helping Jurgen Klopp’s side to the Champions League final last season and is high up on Arsene Wenger’s transfer wish-list.
The box to box performer is contracted to Borussia Dortmund until 2015 but has resisted advances to extend his deal and this has left the Bundesliga club fearful of losing the player for a fraction of his real value or indeed for nothing, with Robert Lewandowski set to also run down his current contract ahead of a likely move to domestic rivals Bayern Munich.
Therefore Dormund are keen to cash in on the player to avoid such an eventuality and Arsene Wenger may well feel the price-tag is a fair one for a player of Gundogan’s undoubted ability and potential.
Real Madrid and Man United are also apparently keen on the former Nurnberg man.
The chance to join national team colleagues Per Mertesacker, Lukas Podolski and Mesut Ozil may well be a motivating factor that aids Arsenal’s push for Gundogan.
