‘Not Really Needed’ ‘Isn’t Any Better Than Xhaka’ – Arsenal Fans Debate Mislintat’s Pursuit Of German Midfield General

Arsenal are interested in signing Borussia Dortmund midfielder Julian Weigl, according to reports in Germany.

The Gunners’ head of recruitment Sven Mislintat is said to be keen to sign the 23-year-old to strengthen Unai Emery’s options in midfield.

Fans on Twitter were uncertain whether a move for Weigl is a good idea, considering the number of holding midfielders the club already have:

Weigl was interesting Manchester City last summer, but it is believed that Dortmund had set an asking price of £68m.

However, since then, the German international has fallen down the pecking order at Signal Iduna Park, with summer signing Axel Witsel being favoured by manager Lucien Favre.

Weigl has made just two starts in the Bundesliga this campaign and has made only seven appearances in total. Still, it is unlikely that Dortmund will let him go.

The German club are reportedly reluctant to let a key squad player leave during the January transfer window.
