According to stories, Arsenal and Tottenham are fighting each other in the race to land Schalke star Leon Goretzka (€20.2m)
Goretzka’s current contract is set to expire at the end of the campaign and considering that his club have not been faring too well, he will probably not be keen to resume and wait for a fresh challenge.
Though the 22-year-old has been a North Londoners target for some time, Spurs have sent scouts to monitor the player’s displays for the bulk of Schalke’s games during the past month.
Considering his age and talent, Goretzka fills the picture of the type of footballer that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy thinks about signing and the club are likely to step up their interest as time proceeds given that the player’s deal is set to end this season.
German sources have revealed that Goretzka wants a fresh challenge and is hoping to join either Barcelona or Bayern Munich.
