Cape Town - German defender Mats Hummels would reportedly prefer a move to London than Manchester as two rivals chase his signature.

The Express report that Mats Hummels would favour a move to Arsenal if he had to leave Dortmund.

Arsene Wenger and Louis van Gaal are set for a January battle to sign the World Cup winning defender but Arsenal have the upper hand according to German sources.

It would take a bid in excess of £30 million for Dortmund to even consider letting their prized asset depart and even then, the defender would need some convincing to make the move to England.

Hummels, who is still just 25-years-old, is one of the most sought after defenders in Europe after cementing his place in the Dortmund first team and then going on to solidify is place in the German national team.
