Arsenal keeping tabs on Mario Gotze ahead of transfer window – report
Arsenal are interested in a deal to sign Mario Gotze from Borussia Dortmund this summer, say reports
Arsenal are monitoring Mario Gotze’s situation at Borussia Dortmund ahead of the summer transfer window, according to reports in the German media.
German newspaper Bild, as quoted by the Daily Mirror, is reporting that the Gunners are potentially interested in a deal to bring the German World Cup winner to The Emirates this summer.
The 26-year-old has one year remaining on his current contract with Dortmund but he is considering his future at the club, according to the same story.
The fact that Gotze is due to enter into the final year of his current deal means that he may be available for a cut-price fee this summer.
According to the same story, Arsenal are keeping a close eye on developments as they ponder making a bid for the Germany international.
It is claimed that Arsenal would be willing to match Gotze’s wage demands, so a move could well be on the cards this summer.
The attacking midfielder scored seven goals and made seven assists in 26 Bundesliga games for Borussia Dortmund this season.
The Gunners are thought to be on the lookout for some creative midfield reinforcements after Aaron Ramsey’s free transfer to Juventus this summer.
