Despite two wins on the rebound, Arsenal are still 13th in the Premier League table, nine points behind the Champions League spots and 13th behind leaders Liverpool.

According to Bild and cited by the Daily starArsenal are eager to sign the 24-year-old, but will face a fight to acquire his services as the Bundesliga giants are believed to have no intention of doing business this month.
The Gunners would do well to have other players as backup, as they cannot afford to spend the entire window chasing a player who will not be allowed to move under any circumstances.
