According to Sport Bild, Arsenal have competition from Barcelona and Manchester United for Leon Goretzka’s signature. Bayern Munich have also been linked with the Schalke midfielder recently and were previously rumoured to have agreed a pre-contract deal. However, such claims turned out to be false.

The German international helped his country win the Confederations Cup in the summer and will be hoping for more opportunities with Joachim Lowe by continuing to impress at club level. Goretzka looks to be running his contract with Schalke without any plans to extend his stay at the Veltins-Arena, so he’ll have a host of suitors in January and next summer.

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.

Goretzka himself was coy when asked about his future, hinting that he’s open to an exit after this summer’s Confederations Cup. “I’m not going to give state-of-play updates, but if there are facts, I will announce them,” he said.
