Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing Borussia Dortmund midfielder Mario Gotze to replace the departing Aaron Ramsey.
The German international has suffered numerous injuries that have curtailed his growth but seems to have shaken the troubles off having played 34 matches for the German outfit in the recently concluded season.
The World Cup winner has one year left on his contract and might be interested in moving abroad for one more challenge before hanging his boots.
He is said to be stalling on a new contract as he weighs his option, especially after learning of interest from some of Europe's top clubs.
Arsenal take on Chelsea in the Europa League finals tonight and are understood to be willing to negotiate after the match.
The Gunners are looking to replace Juventus-bound Ramsey, who agreed on terms with the Turin side in January and will be making the switch at the end of this current campaign.
The Welsh international played his last match for the Gunners in a 1-0 win over Napoli in the quarterfinals of the Europa League, hobbling off with an injury that eventually ended his season.
He has however travelled to support the team in the Baku finals.
