Arsenal is already planning to bolster their squad for the next season, and one of their targets is Manchester City’s captain Ilkay Gundogan. The 32-year-old midfielder has been a vital player for the Premier League champions this season, scoring eight goals and providing four assists in the league title.

Gundogan’s impressive performances have caught the attention of Arsenal’s manager Mikel Arteta, who sees him as the ideal replacement for Granit Xhaka. Xhaka has been linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium, and if he does leave, Arsenal will need a quality midfielder to fill his shoes.

According to a report from The Athletic, Arsenal holds a concrete interest in Gundogan, and Arteta is driving the deal. However, Manchester City will make fresh attempts to keep the German midfielder at the club. Gundogan also has other options, including Barcelona, but as things stand, no agreement has been reached, and the situation is still open.

Arsenal’s pursuit of Gundogan comes after a fierce title race with Manchester City this season. The Gunners were in contention for the Premier League title until a defeat against Nottingham Forest in their 37th game week saw them lose the trophy to The Citizens. Arsenal currently has 81 points while Manchester City has 88 points with a game in hand. Despite leading the league table for ten months this season, Arsenal will have to settle for second place this year.

If Arsenal manages to sign Gundogan, it will be a significant boost to their midfield. The German international has been in excellent form this season, and his experience and quality will add depth to Arsenal’s squad. Gundogan is also known for his versatility as he can play in multiple positions in midfield, including as a holding midfielder or an attacking midfielder.

In conclusion, Arsenal’s pursuit of Ilkay Gundogan shows their ambition to compete for the Premier League title next season. While Manchester City will make fresh attempts to keep their captain at the club, Arsenal’s interest in Gundogan is concrete, and Arteta is driving the deal. If Arsenal manages to sign Gundogan, it will be a significant addition to their squad and a statement of intent for the upcoming season.
