Arsenal reportedly beat Juventus to Sead Kolasinac’s signature last summer by offering him a huge pay check and the Gunners are set to use same method to sign Leon Goretzka ahead of the Italians again.
The Gunners signed Kolasinac on a free transfer last summer, amid interest from a host of top clubs.
Juventus and Chelsea were among the clubs that wanted to sign Kolasinac in the summer but it was Arsenal who won the race for his signature by offering him a huge bonus.
Now Arsenal could do the same thing with Goretzka.
Just like Kolasinac was, Goretzka’s contract expires at the end of the season and appears set to leave Schalke 04 on a free transfer.
Juventus, Chelsea, Liverpool and Barcelona are all rumored to be interested in the 22 year old but Arsenal are working to beat these rivals to his signature.
While some of these clubs are free spending clubs and could as well pay Goretzka what he wants, Calcio Mercato via the Daily Cannon are of the opinion that Arsenal could offer the midfielder a huge bonus, just like it did to Kolasinac.
Goretzka had scored four goals in 11 appearances this season before he got injured. However, he’s already done enough to show he has the quality to play at the top level.
He was Schalke’s best player last season, lit up the FIFA confederation cup with his superb performance and has been a key player for his club this term before his injury. He’ll be a great signing if we manage to get him.
