Arsenal star ‘helping to broker deal’ to bring world class £47 million man to London

Reports have claimed Arsenal centre half Per Mertesacker is trying to help broker a deal to bring German international Mats Hummels to the Emirates, according to the Daily Mail website.

It is no secret that the Borussia Dortmund star is on the shopping list of Arsene Wenger, as he seeks to add a world class centre-half to his squad.

And amid the talk that the Gunners are ready to match the £47 million valuation on Hummels head, Mertesacker is trying to persuade his team-mate that the Emirates is the place to be.

However, one stumbling block may be the fact Hummels wants to join a side capable of winning trophies now, and at this moment in time, the Gunners are a long way off from doing that. © 2017 Frontier Theme
