According to the latest rumours Shinji Kagawa, Borussia Dortmund’s midfielder, is interested in playing for a English club and we are all hoping that Arsene Wenger will attempt adding the attacking midfielder to his Arsenal team.
From the looks of it the Japanese player is determined to leave the Bundesliga this summer for some challenging Premier League action.
“Shinji is going to play in England because he has officially rejected our offer of a new contract.” Declared Michael Zorc, the Borussia Dortmund club president.
The 23-year old is very popular in his homeland and is regarded as a great investment by none other than Arsenal’s fierce enemy Manchester United. The Devils have been courting their target for some time now, but unfortunately for them Wenger may be able to influence the midfielder’s actions and make him take the Gunners equipment.The Frenchman is known for his respect for Japanese players, having previously signed Junichi Inamoto and Ryo Miyaichi.
“The Premiership is one of the leagues I want to challenge. If it is Man United, I’ll be still more eager to go and try how much I can do there.” said the midfielder a few months ago.
The fee for Dortmund’s star is expected to be around £10-12million, an apparently light figure for Arsenal, as Shinji Kagawa entering the final year of his contract.
I believe that Wenger should try and bring the hard working Japanese player in because he is seen by many fans as a breath of fresh air, fitting in perfectly to Arsenal’s playing pattern. Does anyone disagree?
