Arsenal are weighing up a move for Bayern Munich forward Mario Gotze, according to reports.
Wenger is reportedly very keen on strengthening his right wing this summer and is looking to bring a quality player to the Emirates.
Arsenal have been heavily linked with a move for BVB’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan and with the Armenia man set to remain at the club, Wenger is looking at other targets. Mahrez also features high on the French man’s list but Leicester City have offered their star man a new deal worth £100,000 a week to fend off interest. According to the Sun via Ibtimes, Arsene Wenger has now identified Gotze as the man to strengthen the squad.
Gotze has been linked with a move to Liverpool but it is believed the player would favour a move to the Emirates due to the opportunity of playing Champions League football with Arsenal.
Wenger is prepared to table a £27m bid to sign the playmaker who struggled at the Alianz Arena last year. Gotze’s quality is not in doubt as he is one of the most talented players in his generation and a move to Arsenal could put him back to where he was known before last season.
Wenger is prepared to do whatever is needed to win the title next season, the French man knows splashing the cash in the transfer market is one of them and he is very keen to do so.
