Arsenal chase German international midfielder 0

Posted on July 20, 2017 by David Nugent

According to German publication Sport Bild, Arsenal could be set to make a summer move for Schalke’s highly rated German international midfielder Goretzka. However, they could face stiff competition for the 22-year-old from Bavarian giants Bayern Munich for the midfielder’s signature.

The young midfielder is gaining a big reputation in European football. Schalke are unwilling to sell the midfielder, despite his contract expiring next summer.

The German club did the same with Arsenal defender Sead Kolasinac and the defender joined the Gunners on a free transfer this summer. It seems they are prepared to lose another player for nothing next summer and miss out on a significant transfer fee.

According to Sport Bild, Arsenal are interested in signing Schalke 04 midfielder Leon Goretzka this summer.

The 22-year-old is highly-rated and has rejected a contract extension which has set a host of clubs on alert. His deal is up at the end of next season, meaning Schalke have a decision to make whether to cash in now or try and tie him down to a new deal, risking him leaving for free next summer.

Arsenal’s Chilean superstar Alexis Sanchez is demanding a wage packet of around £400,000 to sign a new deal with the Gunners, according to the Daily Mirror.

As we all know Sanchez has just a year left on his current contract to run and speculation has been rife that he wishes to leave the club.

However, the Mirror claims that Sanchez is willing to sit out the last year of his deal at the Emirates and leave on a free transfer. He would then be able to collect a massive signing on fee with his new club.

Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti admitted the perennial Bundesliga champions are interested in Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez, but admitted the Germans won’t over-pay for the Chilean who is out of contract the following summer. Sanchez is 7/1 to join Bayern this summer but the asking price and reported wage demands could be a stumbling block.

“If an opportunity comes up, the club will be ready. There are lots of rumours. Alexis is a great player but not the only one in the world. I like Alexis. There are possibilities in the transfer market, which can be in many directions,” said Ancelotti, reports the Mirror.

Alexis Sanchez is no doubt Arsenal’s star player, but the situation over his future with the club is now becoming tiresome. The Chilean has just a year left on his contract and there are no signs of him signing a new deal with the Gunners.

Last season Sanchez scored 30 goals in 51 appearances in all competitions for Arsenal. The 28-year-old would be very hard to replace, especially taking into account the fact the Gunners are likely to receive a smaller fee as the months on his contract tick down.

Bayern Munich winger Douglas Costa is close to a move to the Italian Serie A, with the Brazilian is 1/6 to join Juventus this summer. According to The Sun, the two European giants have reportedly agreed a £35m deal. But given Arsenal are desperate for attacking reinforcements due to the players potentially leaving ahead of the new season, why didn’t the Gunners try to sign Costa?

The 26-year-old lost his place in the Bayern side last season after a fallout with the club over his contract. He made just 23 Bundesliga appearances under manager Carlo Ancelotti, scoring and creating seven goals. Signed from Ukrainian side Shakhtar in 2015, Costa was an ever-present in his maiden season in the Bundesliga but he’s set to move on.

Arsenal enjoyed a late-season resurgence to take the race for a top-four finish in the Premier League all the way to the final day, but manager Arsene Wenger admitted the upturn in form came too late to secure Champions League football next season. Arsenal suffered three defeats and a draw in five Premier League games in March and the start of April which left their top-four hopes in jeopardy, and Wenger believes the way they were dumped out of Europe by Bayern Munich was reason for the dramatic dip in form.
