Barcelona have hatched a plan to sign Schalke 04 midfielder Leon Goretzka and are set to beat Arsenal to the midfielder’s signature, according to the Daily Mail.

Goretzka has been linked with Arsenal since last season.

 It was widely expected that Wenger would step up his pursuit of the midfielder in the summer but Schalke has been able to keep the midfielder suitors at arms length.

With his contract expiring at the end of the season and the midfielder looking unlikely to sign a new deal, it was thought that Arsenal’s chance to finally sign him has arrived.

But the Daily Mail are claiming, it is Barcelona who are set to secure his signature.

The Catalans made contact with Goretzka recently and have promised to offer him a huge signing-on fee to join them.

It is claimed that Barcelona are confident of signing a pre-contract agreement with the 22 year old in January when he will be free to enter into negotiations with any of his suitors.

This will come as a big blow to Arsenal who sent scouts to watch him on several occasions in the past year.

Barcelona see Goretzka as a cheaper option to Mesut Ozil who is reportedly demanding huge wages. If they sign Goretzka, it will give Arsenal a huge boost in keeping Ozil, which is what I am sure every Gooner would prefer.

Follow Footballbible on Facebook and Twitter to get up to date football related news from the English Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga and other leagues around the World. News From Chelsea, Everton, Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool.

Manchester United have joined Arsenal in the race to sign Loen Goretzka, according to reports.

Goretzka has shown he has the potential to become a top player in the future and his talent have attracted a host of top clubs including Arsenal.

With his contract set to expire in 2018, his future has been thrown under the spotlight and many clubs are jostling to sign him up.

It is understood that Arsenal are big admirers of the midfielder and have been monitoring his situation at Schalke 04 for well over a year but we could now face competition from Man Utd for his services.

 According to the Express, Manchester United have now joined the race to sign the midfielder.

Jose Mourinho is keen on the playmaker who has scored six goals in 31 appearances last season. His ability to play different positions without having a reduction in his performance have caught the attention of Arsene Wenger.

Wenger is a big fan of versatile players and one can see the reason why we are one of the clubs keeping an eye on Goretzka.

Tottenham Hotspur and Bayern Munich are also keen on the midfielder, who would be free to enter into talks with suitors in January. Schalke also do not want to lose the midfielder and are fighting hard to extend his contract.

All these interest will make it very difficult for Arsenal to sign the defender. It remains to be seen whether we’ll be successful.

Arsenal Set To Use Former Teammate Kolasinac To Sign Goretzka – Reports

Follow Footballbible on Facebook and Twitter to get up to date football related news from the English Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga and other leagues around the World. News From Chelsea, Everton, Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool.

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.

Schalke Agree To Sell Goretzka As Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal & Spurs Ready Bid

Schalke 04 may have no option but to sell Arsenal target Leon Goretzka in the January transfer window.

The young German has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League, with Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur all believed to be keen on his services.

Ideally, Schalke want to keep the midfielder but they know they face the prospect of losing him for nothing in the summer if he doesn’t extend his contract which runs out at the end of the season.

The Bundesliga outfit has offered Goretzka a club record €12m per season contract but he’s yet to respond to the offer. They have now handed an ultimatum to him, demanding an answer before Christmas.

According to the Tribalfootball, Schalke will look to sell Goretzka in January if he turns down the new offer.

Four of the Premier league’s top six are believed to be chasing the midfielder but it was reported last week that it is Arsenal and Liverpool who are leading the race to sign him.

Arsenal may well use Goretzka’s relationship with Sead Kolasinac who joined us as a free agent from Schalke last summer to edge out Liverpool.

Goretzka established himself as Germany’s next big talent last season with his super performances and continued his fine form at the FIFA Confederations Cup which took place last summer. He continued this season where he left off last season and is now drawing a lot of interest. He’s proven he can play at the top level and I am keen to see Arsenal secure his signing.

Wenger Set to Sign Star Winger Wanted By Man Utd and Chelsea

Follow Footballbible on Facebook and Twitter to get up to date football related news from the English Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga and other leagues around the World. News From Chelsea, Everton, Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool.

Arsenal are understood to be amongst the queue of clubs battling out for the signature of Bordeaux winger Malcom.

The youngster is attracting even more attention this campaign with his performances far exceeding his impressive debut season in Ligue 1 following his arrival from Corinthians last year.

The 20-year-old joined Bordeaux from Corinthians in 2016 and enjoyed a promising first full season in France, scoring seven goals and creating another five. This season, he looks set to improve on that. He already has five goals and five assists in 15 appearances in all competitions which has top European clubs monitoring the player’s situation.

According to recent reports, the Gunners would need to see off competition from home and abroad to land the vastly talented winger.

It is Mercato365 via Daily Cannon, that has revealed Arsenal are up against domestic giants Manchester United and Chelsea as well as European heavyweights Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain in showing an interest in the Brazilian who is valued at around £15m by the French side.

Gunners’ interest in the tricky winger comes with no surprise, with the star duo Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil set to depart the Emirates in one of the next two windows, Wenger is understood to be monitoring a few top talents around Europe capable making an impact in North London.

Whilst Gooners would be pessimistic about our chances of coming out tops in a battle with several European giants to sign the player, it should also be remembered that it’s a different ball game entirely for Wenger when young players on a bargain are involved.

Whilst there is no denying the player’s unbelievable potential, the more important concern for me would be if Malcom is currently at a level where he could come in next year and adequately replace the departing Sanchez.

L’Equipe Provide Latest Update On Arsenal and Liverpool Target Draxler

Follow Footballbible on Facebook and Twitter to get up to date football related news from the English Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga and other leagues around the World. News From Chelsea, Everton, Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool.

Liverpool are set to battle Arsenal for the services of out of favour Paris Saint-Germain winger Julian Draxler.

The Gunners who are long term admirers of the German international Julian Draxler are understood to be monitoring the player’s situation in Paris.

The 23-year-old who only arrived at the Parc des Princes in January in a £35million move from Germany is understood to be unhappy with life in Paris having lost his preferred position in the first team due to Paris Saint-Germain’s summer heavy recruitment.

PSG made Neymar the most expensive footballer of all time in a £198million deal last summer and then added French sensation Kylian Mbappe to further bolster their attacking ranks.

Draxler who has been a casualty of their arrival could very well seek a move away from PSG. The player has been linked with a possible switch to the Emirates in the past, but recent reports from France have indicated that Liverpool are keen to temporarily take him in January.

It is L’Equipe via Tribal Football that has revealed that Liverpool have already made contact with the Parisian club over an ambitious loan move.

The winger has largely impressed since making his move to the French capital, Draxler ended last season in blistering form having scored 10 goals and assisted 3 times in 25 appearances, he then captained a second string German side to victory in the Confederations Cup and was rightfully crowned the best player in Russia.

With the departure of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the last window and the expected departure of Alexis Sanchez in one of the next two windows, the Emirates is already crying out for the arrival of a talented wideman and Wenger should be looking at beating the competition to land Draxler should he become available.

Race To Sign Goretzka: Arsenal and Liverpool Ahead of Chelsea, Man Utd, Man City and Spurs

Arsenal and Liverpool are leading the race to sign Schalke 04 midfielder Leon Goretzka, according to reports.

Goretzka is attracting interest from a host of top clubs and it has emerged that Arsenal are one of his likeliest destination at the moment.

The midfielder’s contract at Schalke expires at the end of the season and he looks set to leave, after turning down several contract renewals.

According to the Express, Goretzka wants to move to the Premier League and his representatives are already in contact with English suitors.

According to the report, Arsenal and Liverpool are the two frontrunners in the race to sign Goretzka.

Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are also keen on the midfielder but are behind in the race for his services.

Klopp is in regular contact with Goretzka’s representatives in a bid to convince him to choose Anfield, while Wenger is a big fan and have sent scouts to watch him on several occasions.

Arsenal may need to sign a new midfielder, as both Wilshere and Ozil could leave when their contract expires at the end of the season.

Hopefully, Goretzka’s former teammate Sead Kolasinac who is now a Gunner can play a part in luring the midfielder to the Emirates.

Arsenal hope to sign the German on a free transfer in the summer just like we did with Kolasinac last summer but that doesn’t rule out the possibility of a January bid as we may have to make an early move t secure his signature.

Reliable Source Claim Arsenal Set To Agree Loan Deal With PSG for Draxler

Follow Footballbible on Facebook and Twitter to get up to date football related news from the English Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga and other leagues around the World. News From Chelsea, Everton, Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool.

Arsenal want to sign Julian Draxler on loan in the winter transfer window as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez.

The Gunners have been linked with almost every winger out there but a few names like Draxler have featured constantly. Arsenal fans will no doubt be familiar with the talented winger who has been linked with us since his days at Schalke 04.

He only joined Paris Saint Germain last January but his future at the French club is under threat after Neymar joined the French club last summer.

And now according to L’Equipe via the Daily Cannon, Arsenal are one of the numerous clubs that have enquired about the possibility of signing Draxler on loan in January.

The motivation is that the player will be offered the opportunity to play regularly in the months preceding the world cup.

PSG are not prepared to give up on Draxler just yet and they may be tempted by the chance of letting the winger play regularly elsewhere without selling.

A more difficult task would be to convince Draxler to leave PSG. The German has always insisted he is happy at Paris despite the increased competition for first team place and unless his position in the Germany national team is under threat, I don’t think he would want to leave.

He knows he is guaranteed titles at PSG and may want to stay to win some titles with the French club at the end of the season.
