Arsenal move to sign £27m Aaron Ramsey replacement 

Premier League side, Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing Borussia Dortmund midfielder Julian Weigl according to reports from Germany.

German news outlet Sport Bild reports that the club have made a formal enquiry over the services of the 23 year old midfielder.

Weigl is considered as one of the star players for the German side and has emerged as a dependable player since arriving the club in 2015 from 1860 Munich.

It is understood that Dortmund have informed Arsenal that the player is valued at around £27 million. Weigl would be an excellent utility player for the Gunners as he is capable of operating in both the defensive midfield role and can drop in as a centre back.

The German international was a key figure for Borussia Dortmund in the past season. The 23 year old is comfortable in possession and can dictate the pace of the game with his passing ability. Emery is a huge fan of the player and reportedly wants him to provide competition for Swiss ace Granit Xhaka.

For just £27 million Weigl is a bargain as players of his quality usually go for fees higher than this value. It remains to be seen whether the club would make a formal bid for the player.
