Manchester City are the latest club to be linked with Schalke 04 midfielder Leon Goretzka.
Goretzka has been linked with five of the Premier League’s big six before now but the list has now been completed, after City allegedly joined the race for his signature.
Goretzka’s contract with Schalke expires at the end of the season and it does look like he isn’t going to continue with the German side.
Arsenal are one of the numerous clubs believed to be interested in the midfielder.
Juventus, Bayern Munich and Barcelona have also been linked with the midfielder.
It doesn’t end there, as reports in Spain are claiming the midfielder has agreed a deal with Liverpool who want him to replace Emre Can.
And according to Bild via the Daily Cannon, City’s interest is now set to complicate the pursuit of the midfielder.
Goretzka has been impressive for Schalke since last season, he continued his fine form at the Confederations cup and has been doing the same this season until he got injured.
He’s already shown he has what it takes to perform at the top level, so it isn’t surprising that he is attracting this much interest.
Schalke are determined to keep the midfielder and are trying to convince him to sign a new deal.
Should he refuse to sign, they may be forced to sell him in the January transfer window. It’s almost certain they’ll make good money from a January move, with the number of clubs interested in him.
