United lead Arsenal in chase for stunning £77m pair.
Manchester United enjoyed a 2-1 win over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium this weekend and they may be about to win a couple of battles in the transfer market as well, according to recent reports.

The two clubs are both known to be chasing a number of the same players ahead of the January transfer window, with Louis van Gaal and Arsene Wenger largely in need of strengthening in a lot of the same positions – defence and midfield.
It has now emerged that United are edging closer to landing two of their top targets in these positions, whilst also handing a major blow to Arsenal as they had also been chasing the same pair, though they may have been unable to compete with the Red Devils financially.
After spending big in the summer, van Gaal now looks set to do so again this January with an exciting double signing for these two big names:
1) Mats Hummels (Borussia Dortmund)
Supposedly valued at a staggering £47m, Borussia Dortmund’s high asking price for world class centre-back Mats Hummels may have put Arsenal off for the time being, with United now the favourites to land the immensely talented German international this season.
