Manchester United have joined Arsenal in the race to sign Schalke 04 midfielder 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 Arsenal are big admirers of the midfielder and have been monitoring his situation at Schalke for well over a year but we could now face competition from Man Utd for his services.
According to German publication Bild via the Daily Cannon, Manchester United have now joined the race to sign the midfielder alongside Bayern Munich and Arsenal.
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.
But Man Utd and Bayern’s interest will make a move to the Emirates very difficult. Schalke also do not want to lose the midfielder and are fighting hard to extend his contract.
