Arsenal have been handed a major boost in their rumoured transfer pursuit of Leon Goretzka, with Schalke reportedly ready to sell him this summer as he continues to shun a new contract.
Goretzka, 22, has been in fine form for Schalke this season and top clubs are already lurking around the midfielder.
One of the clubs believed to be paying close attention to the midfielder’s performances is Arsenal.
The Gunners are known admirer of the German and were first linked with him in January. With the summer transfer window fast approaching, we have renewed our interest in his services.
However, we are not alone in the race to sign the midfielder as Juventus are also keeping a close watch on his performances.
It won’t be a bad idea for Arsenal to make a move for Goretzka especially after all the midfield troubles we’ve been through this term.
Goretzka is a versatile lad and has the ability to play either as a central midfielder, an attacking midfielder or on the right side of the midfield.
His versatility will be a great asset to our squad especially when injuries begin to take its toll.
Considering his quality, he could just take up the Aaron Ramsey role at Arsenal and push the Welsh man who has failed to impress this term down the pecking order.
At his age, Goretzka has a lot of years ahead of him to improve and should he keep his head down, he could become a world class midfielder in no distant time.
