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.
