Arsenal contact Borussia Dortmund for star midfielder

According to German newspapers, Arsenal have already approached Bundesliga giants, Borussia Dortmund in order to acquire the services of their star midfielder, Sven Bender. The young German has been in amazing form for the Germans over the past couple of seasons and following a rather turbulent last campaign, is keen on testing his skills elsewhere.

Now that Jurgen Klopp has left the club and many players are linked with moves away from the Westefallenstadion, Bender is also looking at his options.

Arsene Wenger is a big admirer of the German international and after missing out on French midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin, is keen on bringing Bender to the Emirates in a bid to add more bite to the midfield that was found lacking in a few areas last season.

Although Borussia Dortmund are not really keen on letting go of their star player, the club knows that it really needs a lot of money in order to rebuild the team.
