Deal Close: Arsenal set to sign impressive £27million attacker

According to the reports from the Sun, ithe Gunners are on the verge of paying the Bundesliga champions £27m for Mario Gotze, who has fallen out of favour at the team because of his alleged wage demands.

However, reports in Germany insist that the Bavarian club are keen to get him off their wage bill as they cannot justify his £110,000-a-week contract.

On top of that, they do not feel that he possesses full set of requirements to play as either a striker or a midfielder.

Looking at the same report according to The Sun, "the Gunners lining up an “astonishing” swoop for the midfielder, Mario Gotze of Bayern Munich."

As far as one can see and tell, the Gunners has been forced to move on with the signing of Gotze possibly from the blow incurred from the signing of Henrikh Mkhitaryan as it was earlier reported that he the Armenian has his heart set on a move to Manchester United.

Due to this, Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has transferred his full attention across Germany to Munich with a brazen bid for Gotze, despite news in recent weeks that Liverpool have also been linked with the German World Cup winner.

However, the Arsenal boss is ready to pay the German superstar weekly wages of £110,000 and strongly believes in himself that Gotze has the skill set to operate either as striker or as a midfielder for the Emirates outfit.

The Frenchman would welcome the chance of working with such a talented player and would pair him with compatriot Mesut Ozil in the north Londoner’s attack.

Gotze scored the winning goal at the 2014 World Cup for Germany and he has won three consecutive Bundesliga titles with FC Bayern, The Gunners reported fee of £27m could prove good value, even though his contract with FCB is up next summer.

However, If Arsenal do make an offer for the German international, they are likely to face serious opposition from Liverpool, whose manager is Gotze's former mentor, Jurgen Klopp.

Klopp, the Reds boss, is expected to be handed a mammoth transfer fund for the refurbishment of an under-performing squad, and as Liverpool are not in any European competition next season, he may focus on signing a few quality additions as opposed to making comprehensive changes.

At any rate, one player who Wenger won’t be seeing at the Emirates next season is Uruguayan hitman Edinson Cavani as, according to reports from Talksport, he has ended talk of a move to Arsenal by signing a big-money contract extension with the Les Rouge-et-Bleu (The Red and Blue).

The Red Devils had also been mooted as a possible destination for the 29-year-old frontman but, according to Sky Italia, the exit of Zlatan Ibrahimovic has prompted Cavani to pen a new contract that will keep him in the French capital until 2020 and earn him a reported £6m-a-year.


  1. I hope this report isn't true. Gotze is yet another lightweight, and has never much impressed me. I think he would add very little to Arsenal.

    1. Looking at the Gunners squad presently as it is, Gotze would add an impact on it. I would be happy if the Frenchman could proceed and bring him to the Emirates this summer. #COYG

  2. "they do not feel that he possesses full set of requirements to play as either a striker or a midfielder"

    We already got Walcott playing in that position...

    1. yeah yeah, but Walcott future with Arsenal in not sure of yet. And he has been inconsistent for a while now and there are links of him moving to other EPL clubs. West-Ham i think.

    2. They were being ironic.

  3. If Wenger buys Gotze as a alternative centre forward, that would surpass some of the stubborn and stupid decisions he's made over the past few seasons. Arsenal don't need Gotze they need a proper top quality centre forward and another centre back.

  4. Wenger is not a good manager , when the team needs a striker he goes other side we do not need Gotze we need full forward

  5. I have been tired for wenger, we do not need a Gotze We need a full forward striker

  6. Let Arsenal buy Mahrez of Leicester and Mane of Soton and we shall be assured of success. Add a left back Rodriguez
