Arsenal could be handed a final blow in the pursuit of midfield pass-master, if reports of rivals Manchester United odds on to sign the player are to be believed.
Manchester United are now odds on to sign Arsenal’s long time target Ilkay Gundogan.
This report is according to Metro, who claims the Red Devils are close to completing the transfer of the German, as odds have been slashed from 3/1 to even.
Arsenal and Manchester United have been heavily linked with a move for the Borussia Dortmund midfielder in recent weeks, but Betfair’s reflects Old Trafford as the 24-year-old’s destination.
Gundogan who just recovered from a long term injury was also thought to be Barcelona’s wish-list.
However, the Nou Camp outfit have reportedly pulled out of the race to sign the player leaving United in pole position to acquire his services for next season.
