Arsenal are plotting a summer transfer shocker with reports of talks been held with family of Manchester United target – who’s said to have already agreed a deal with the Red Devils.

According to the Metro, Arsenal are reportedly in talks with Ilkay Gundogan’s family over a summer move to the Emirates despite the German already believed to have agreed a deal with Manchester United.

The 24-year-old Borussia Dortmund midfielder, who has already made clear his intentions to exit the Westfalenstadion at the end of the season, had apparently agreed terms with the Red Devils recently.

But reports now say that United are somewhat reluctant in pushing through the deal for the central midfielder due to his poor injury record, placing Arsenal on red alert.

SportBild say that Arsenal officials are now locked in talks with Gundogan’s family, and a deal is now close in favour of Arsenal.

This reports will surely come as good news to Arsenal fans who have long requested for the midfield maestro’s services.
