Arsenal emerge as an interested side for Ilkay Gundogan
The player’s talks with City over a new deal is currently at a standstill. The Germany international currently demands a hefty salary with a two year contract. City might not offer him any of that. Furthermore Barcelona are also monitoring the situation of the player. And as per reports Ilkay Gundogan would love to end up at Camp Nou. Furthermore they are prepared to offer him the term of contract he is asking for. However they are not ready to offer him the same fee. Meanwhile Arsenal are also monitoring the situation closely. It will definitely be a coup for the Gunners give the status of Ilkay Gundogan. The player have 90 goal involvement in 290 games since his move to City. Furthermore he is yet another winner. Therefore he will help to bring the winning mentality in the dressing room.
