The story is informative:

Gunners are now being linked with a blockbuster £63m raid on Borussia Dortmund to sign Germany internationals Ilkay Gundogan and Mats Hummels.

The Metro reports that Arsenal have bid £15.6million for Gundogan. That means Arsenal are prepared to spend £47.4 m on Mats Hummels. Wow!

They should get him for that. Because the Mirror says Humels to Manchester United for £35m.

And there was the Daily Express, which reported:

ARSENAL are preparing to launch a £32million bid for Borussia Dortmund star and Manchester United target Mats Hummels.

Well, it was first reported in the Daily Star., which makes no mention of the £63m in its story.
