Arsenal are interested in signing Christoph Kramer, the German midfielder who famously was subbed off early during the World Cup final after suffering concussion, Goal reports.
The Gunners have sent scouts to watch the Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder, currently on loan for the second consecutive season from fellow Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen.
Kramer is rated at around £12m, which seems like a bargain considering he’s only 23-years-old and has already won the biggest prize in football.
The player himself has hinted that his future lies elsewhere, which could make Arsenal’s chances of signing him far easier.
“In general, being involved in the football business is often like modern human trafficking,” he said.
“But for me, a contract can say whatever it wants. If I don’t want to play somewhere next season, I won’t play there. In the end, I will still decide where I play.”
With Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini the only natural defensive midfielders in the Arsenal squad, and both out of contract at the end of the season, manager Arsene Wenger is keen to strengthen his combative options in the centre of the park.
Kramer prides himself on his physicality and his simple passing, and the platform he provides for the rest of the side.
