Arsenal are closing in on the deal with a German International Lars Bender after losing out on their primary target Luis Gustavo in the summer transfer window. It is not the first time that Arsenal are linked with the German ad Arsene Wenger looks like to be a big admirer or him. The Daily Star cite German sources when claiming that Gunners chief Arsene Wenger is eager to bring the player to the Emirates Stadium, and is ready to table an improved offer of £25million for the player.
An interesting thing here to notice is that Sky Bet favors the odds for the German prodigy opting to play for the Gunners with Arsenal now 6/1 favorites to bring the player to the Premier League.
Bender would be the fourth high-profile German at the club if the Gunners were to land the player, with Mesut Ozil joining Per Mertesacker and Lukas Podolski at the end of the summer transfer window.
The 24 year old continues to earn praises for his spectacular performances as he adapts to different tactics and provides more flexibility by settling into different formations. His time at his home Bayern Leverkusen can come to an end if Arsenal are to have a stronger crack at the Premier League title.
