Arsenal already have a substantial German contingent at the Emirates, and look likely to add to it with the likes of Lars Bender and Real Madrid’s Sami Khedira linked with a move to North London…
Arsene Wenger has been investing heavily in German talent over the last few years; with the likes of Per Mertesacker, Mesut Ozil, and Lukas Podolski all joining the club. And based on the players Arsenal have been linked with recently, he doesn’t look to be changing his ways any time soon.
The Gunners are badly in need of a centre-back and a defensive midfielder, and with Wenger now spending a bit more freely there could be a number of new faces at the Emirates.

He may not be the first centre-back on Arsene Wenger’s list, but with Arsenal’s needs so great at the moment, he may not be able to afford to be too picky.
The versatile Schalke star would tick a lot of boxes for the Gunners, and would be significantly cheaper than some of the players linked in recent weeks.
