The Schalke midfielder Lewis Holtby has been linked with a move to Arsenal since January, when it was reported by some influential journalists that a pre-contract agreement had already been arranged with the Gunners.
The 21 year-old, who missed out on a place in the Germany side at the Euros due to injury, has made it clear that he is happy playing in the Bundesliga, but would be very happy if the chance came along for him to join Arsenal.
“You never know, I’m just living every day in the day. I’m in Canada now, I’m enjoying it with my friends I’m just preparing for the new season.
“I just want to give my best for Schalke and you never know. I always said that my aim was to come to the Premier League one day because I love the league and my father is English. Some of my favourite teams are Everton and Arsenal so you never know.
“A move to Arsenal would be a massive move because in footballing terms they have always been my favourite.
“They play nice one touch football, offensive and with young players and a nice stadium so its a nice club. But for now my thoughts are with Schalke and you never know.
“My agent is there for that, I am here to play football. I love playing football, I love winning trophies and that is my dedication and that is my life.”
