Once again the transfer rumours are heating up. The latest player linked with a move to the Premier League is Manchester United target Shinji Kagawa, who recently announced that he will not be extending his current contract with Borussia Dortmund which is due to expire at the end of next season.
Dortmund director Michael Zorc had this to say about the situation:
‘I spoke to Shinji and his advisor last week and to date he is not willing to extend his contract.
‘We have a Plan A and B and we will follow one of them. We won’t gamble, but he has a specific career plan and he plans to play in England.
‘We have to accept that, even if we don’t find it good.’
Question is, should Arsenal look to try and acquire the Japan international from under United’s nose this summer? In my opinion, I think we should keep and eye on him, and a potential move will, I think, depend on what happens with to our current midfield and if we actually sign our targets.
It is thought Dortmund will be looking for a fee as little as £5 million for Kagawa and both Arsenal and United, as well as any other interested club, stand a good chance of signing the 23-year-old.
No matter what the outcome, The Bundesliga club will be sad to see the talented midfielder leave, as he has scored 16 goals and bagged 10 assists in 40 games for them this year, an impressive record to say the very least.
It was announced yesterday that Arsenal have officially signed Lukas Podolski from FC Koln and Shinji Kagawa could make be another great signing for the Gunners.
So, should we attempt to lure the Dortmund playmaker to The Emirates this summer?
