Arsenal offer Gundogan lucrative two-year contract

Arsenal have reportedly offered Ilkay Gundogan a two-year contract as the club look to sign the Manchester City midfielder on a free transfer.

Gundogan is out of contract this summer and his situation remains uncertain as the German approaches the end of his deal at the Etihad.


Pep Guardiola last week hinted at a desire for Gundogan to sign new terms with the Premier League champions, following the midfielder’s match-winning double in the club’s FA Cup final win over Manchester United on Saturday.

However, the length of City’s contract offer is understood to be a sticking point in negotiations with the Citizens having offered a one-year extension with the option of a further season.

Sport are reporting that Arsenal and Barcelona are hoping to capitalise on the situation with longer-term offers and the former have reportedly offered a two-year deal in the hope of persuading Gundogan to the Emirates.

Mikel Arteta worked with the midfielder during his time on the coaching staff at Manchester City and is keen to add the 32-year-old to his options ahead of Arsenal’s Champions League return.

Barcelona are reported to have offered Gundogan a three-year deal, but are unable to compete financially with offers from the Premier League.

Gundogan is not expected to make a decision on his future until after Manchester City’s Champions League final with Inter Milan on Saturday, as the club look to complete a historic treble.
