Hertha Berlin Chasing Arsenal Stopper Senderos - Report

The Swiss defender could re-unite with his first manager in the German capital...
Hertha Berlin have emerged as the latest candidate to sign unwanted Arsenal defender Philippe Senderos.

Senderos has returned to the Emirates after Milan decided not to purchase him following his loan spell. However, the Gunners do not want him either, and, according to Swiss daily Blick, Hertha are ready to step in.

The Swiss international played under the Bundesliga side's current coach, Lucien Favre, at Servette when he was just 16, and the pair could be keen to renew their relationship.

Hertha have just sold Josep Simunic to Hoffenheim for around €7 million, which is approximately the fee Arsenal are expecting for their surplus centre-half.

Senderos is actively seeking a move away from Ashburton Grove, having realised - with the arrival of Thomas Vermaelen from Ajax - that he does not feature in the club's plans.
