Arsenal will not sign a 25 million ace, but injuries are a major concern ...

Despite interest from Arsenal, Manuel Akanjis'' injury record might slam the Borussia Dortmunds in obtaining a 25 million fee, according to the Business Journal.

While Dortmund can set a record for transforming talented young forwards into free-scoring superstars from Erling Haaland to Jadon Sancho, the Bundesliga giants have certainly not had the same success at the other end of the pitch.

Dan-Axel Zagadou was released last month, owing the price for failing to build on the enormous potential he initially showed following his departure from Paris Saint-Germain.

Akanji is put on the verge of being pushed out the door because to his contract being broken.

Akanji will leave the Signal Iduna Park with a pang of guilt deep in his stomach. Transfermarkt claims that he had suffered 12 different injuries during just four years on the banks of the Rhine.

Deutsch: Akanji has not started more than 26 Bundesliga games. No wonder Dortmund are struggling to reach a club willing to generate 25 million euros. Especially when you consider Akanji to be a free-agent in just 12 months

BILD believe that Arsenal have shown a deep interest in the past. However, the Gunners are unlikely to make a move anytime soon. Mikel Arteta is willing to include a left-footed centre-half to compete against Gabriel Magalhaes in the Emirates Stadium.

Nico Schlotterbeck was one of the players who joined the club. Ironically, his arrival at Dortmund would plummet further into Akanji''s position.

Arsenal will complement Inter Milan''s Federico Dimarco if Arteta utilises an Antonio Conte-style three-man backline on a regular basis.
