Ilkay Gundogan Man City

Manchester City and Arsenal may have cause for concern as they await the diagnosis for the Germany international’s latest injury.

The Germany international’s fitness has been under the spotlight after the 25-year-old missed a year of football due to a back injury.

ESPN have reported that Gundogan has missed training with a minor injury and has started only one match since the goalless draw with Bayern Munich in early March

The injury comes off the back of another injury Gundogan picked up in March which kept him out for a month.

Manchester City are close to finalising the transfer of Gundogan according to the Daily Mail. The Sun newspaper claims that City director of football Txiki Begiristain and Pep Guardiola have managed to convince the Germany international of Turkish origin to join the club after weeks of talks.

Arsenal are also interested in the 25-year-old according to the Daily Mail newspaper.
