Arsenal Table €5m Offer For Dortmund Star Kevin Großkreutz – Report

By on January 23, 2015

According to reports in Italy, Arsenal have tabled a €5m bid for Borussia Dortmund star Kevin Großkreutz.

The versatile German international has been with Dortmund since joining the club in 2009 and has been a regular in Jurgen Klopps side in recent years.

He’s predominantly been used as a right-back but is also capable of playing a variety of roles including left-wing and central midfield, so he’d certainly be a useful player to have in the squad.

And there could be a chance of ti happening as Italian outlet calciomercato.it are reporting today Arsenal have tabled a €5m bid for the 26-year-old.

However, that offer has been knocked back as it’s thought that Dortmund value Großkreutz at nearer €12m but could be persuaded to cash-in at around €10m.

The report claims that we could increase our offer to nearer €6.5m, but that’s still some way short of what it will take to get a deal agreed so at this stage a move seems unlikely.

But I’d love to see Großkreutz come to the club and feel he’s easily worth €10m in today’s market. The fact Debuchy is out again means we’d have an experienced deputy and he’d even be able to play left-wing if needed – which is an area we could be lacking depth in with Lukas Podolski gone and Joel Campbell expected to follow.

So I hope Arsene comes to his senses and meets Dortmund’s asking price as Großkreutz would be an excellent addition.

    Wenger come to his senses and buy him? There is only a week left in the window. He needs a lot more time than that to make a serious move.
