Arsene Wenger is set to launch a double transfer raid on Borussia Dortmund with a move for Mats Hummels and Ilkay Gundogan in a deal worth £63m.

Wenger has been a long-time admirer of Hummels but will follow up that interest by tieing up a move for midfielder Gundogan at the same time, believes the Daily Star.

Hummels has refused to commit his future to the club and revealed he has received offers from various clubs during his time with Dortmund.

"I have always decided not to leave. I think I have made some good decisions and I want to make those in the future as well.

“I have never said I will stay until 2024 or 2030 or whenever. But I have stayed until today. I will stick to my way of not promising anything and maybe leave someday instead of saying I will stay forever and then leave all of a sudden.

“I am not really known as a globetrotter. I have been with two clubs in 26 years. Loyalty is important to me."
