Arsenal receives bad news from abroad as it seems that long term club target Mario Gotze is not only targeted by a lot of European clubs, but also has a huge price tag slapped on his head by Borussia Dortmund’s officials.
According to the player’s agent, United have already made an inquiry so Wenger will have a very hard time signing him in the summer if the interest from the Gunners will remain alive until then.
“I think in Europe all the top clubs are interested in Mario.
“I can confirm that I have had contact with Juventus and Manchester United, but not only them.
“I don’t know if he’ll go away after this season, you should ask Borussia. But I think that they will not let him leave for less than 40million euros.
“He still is very happy at Dortmund, though now he is injured.”
Wenger might have a smarter plan at hand than anybody expected though. After the player told newspapers that he doesn’t want to leave the club because he has a lot of friends there, the Gunners transferred one of his colleagues Thomas Eisfeld and are also expected to make an offer for the midfielder’s best friend Grosskreuts in the summer. Do you think this will motivate Gotze to join?
