Arsenal boosted in their pursuit of world-cup winning attacking midfielder

By | November 9, 2019

Bayern Munich attacker Thomas Muller could finally be heading to the PL after the German striker reportedly asked to depart the Bundesliga giants.

The 30-year-old forward has fallen out of favour under manager Niko Kovac and has started the last five games on the bench.

Muller was a target for Manchester United back in 2014 and 2015 when Louis van Gaal was prepared to break the club’s transfer record to land the forward.

However, Bayern rejected bids in the region of £80 million for Muller and the striker intended on ending his professional career in Bavaria.

Arsenal and Liverpool were both keen in 2017 but Muller again resisted lucrative offers to depart as he was happy with his boyhood team, who he joined at the age of 11.

However, after 19 years with the club, Bild claim that Muller has decided to leave after growing tired of a lack of game time under Kovac.

Muller has started just three league matches this term and has lost his spot in the side to Philippe Coutinho, who joined the Germans from Barcelona last summer.

Thomas’ current deal runs until 2021 and it remains to be seen what price die Roten will demand for the forward should they decide to let him go.

Meanwhile, according to the Daily Mail, the Gunners have been scouting Red Bull Salzburg forward Hwang Hee-chan this season and the London outfit could decide to launch an offer next summer when the South Korea international is widely expected to leave the club.
