Arsenal are reportedly leading the race to sign Schalke 04 midfielder Leon Goretzka.
Arsenal are one of the clubs interested in Goretzka and have been monitoring his situation for well over a year. His contract expires at the end of the season and doesn’t look like he wants to sign a new deal at Schalke.
And the Sun via Sports Mole claim Arsenal have intensified interest in Goretzka as we begin to look up for potential replacements for Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.
Earlier this week, it was claimed that Barcelona are confident of signing the midfielder in January when he would be free to enter into talks with suitors in the new year.
The Spanish giants are hoping to tempt the midfielder by promising him a huge signing-on fee, making this report a bit surprising.
Whether we’ll actually be able to beat Barca and other free spending clubs to the midfielder’s signature remains to be seen.
Goretzka recently revealed he will make a decision in January. Hopefully Arsenal will be able to convince him to snub rivals interests. I am a bit hopeful about this especially after we beat a host of top clubs to sign Sead Kolasinac last summer. If we can do it then, we can do it now.
