Latest transfer rumour will put a smile on Arsenal fans faces

A lot of the Arsenal transfer rumours involve players I have not really heard of or are unproven but that cannot be said about the latest rumour doing the rounds in the media today.

Borussia Dortmund’s Mario Gotze is apparently being linked with a move to the Emirates in the summer and if that is true it would represent a major coup.

The story originated with Bild in Germany who are claiming that Gotze is considering his future at Dortmund and could be available for a cut-price fee.

Gotze has just one year remaining on his contract and it is also being reported that Arsenal is prepared to meet his wage demands, so all good, right? Well, sort of, first and foremost we have to secure Champions League football next season because that is seen as a deal breaker.

The attacking midfielder was one of the best players in the world in his position for Dortmund until the end of the 2012-13 season and then left for Bayern Munich, where he regressed slightly before eventually returning to Dortmund in 2016.

It took him some time to regain his best form and over the last season we finally started to see some of the old Gotze, however, he was never really forgiven by the Dortmund faithful for joining Bayern and it is no real surprise to hear that he is looking to move on once again.

Make no mistake, Gotze is a huge talent, he is still only 26 and scored the winner for Germany in the 2014 World up final against Argentina.

He is versatile and can play across the pitch from the midfield to the forward line, he is immensely talented and when he is on his game is almost unplayable.

The playmaker would fit in perfectly at Arsenal, he plays the exact sort of football that we are associated with, he is a brilliant passer of the ball, a fine dribbler with a thunderous shot.

This is one player that I hope we can land, he would make a huge difference.


  1. Not another CAM please, especially the injury-prone ones like Goetze/ Rodriguez and we already have too many

    If Goetze is a game changer, why haven’t Dortmund extended his contract? He failed at Bayern Muenchen and Dortmund, plagued with injuries and couldn’t even start ahead of Ozil when they both played for Germany

    If Arsenal want to recruit another boyband-member-alike attacker or a shirt seller, they had better chase Ousmane Dembele. Barcelona have reportedly had enough with his injuries and at least he is an excellent winger

    1. “couldn’t even start ahead of Ozil” Oh Ozil, you mean that guy that has won consecutive German player of the year awards for many years in a row? Yeah mean he couldn’t even get in front of their literal best and most important player? WOW! He must be terrible then!

      See, it’s comments like this that display so perfectly the bizarre agenda people seems to have against this man. Implying that Gotze is a poor player because he couldn’t get in front of Ozil in the German squad when the guy has consistently been their single best player for years. And this is a supposed Arsenal fan coming out with this. Worst fanbase in the entire country.

  2. I woke up today and I am less positive. Am praying still praying though but I already call it.

    1. Oh Pat ? keep your chin up!! Think we’ll have more of an idea, when the line ups come out!
      #thinkpositive ??

    1. If you want the same information that Kev gets then just sit on Twitter reading worthless transfer rumours all day from extremely unreliable sources.

  3. Winning this game today ain’t an option, Winning is top priority tonight.
    Pat don’t worry, I’m positive, you can tag along, Sue will probably stay covered up in an arm chair somewhere shaking before the TV.
    But the boys will do this, Lacazette will be extra motivated and happier to get this trophy as birthday gift.

    1. ?? Eddie!! I am a little nervous, yes!! But not shaking uncontrollably just yet!!
      I am buzzing though, just hope it lasts!! COYG

      1. ???? Sue you are my doze of encouragement. But I know what I know. Eddie good to heart from you again. Please don’t fall sick again.

        1. “But I know what I know.”
          What does that even mean??
          That even if Sue encourages u all day, even if Martin L.K encourages you, You know Arsenal like your palms???
          I hate falling sick, it’s never enjoyable,
          Oh BTW Sue trust me, you’ll still end up shaking uncontrollably

  4. This definitely a big NO!
    We complained of some of our players being lazy and injury prone and we are targeting another lazy and injury prone player again.

  5. Gotze is still only 26 year old? It seems like he has been around for centuries. Lol
    It seems other peoples age slowly while my aging is on steriods.
    Slow the hell down my age.

  6. Pass on Goetzed. He’s not an Emery player so even if you like him we will not be signing the umpa lumpa.

  7. if he is so great why doesn’t anyone else want him?
    Come on gooners, I think its about time we stopped signing second rate deadwood from other teams.
    Rabiot should be on top of our list and he is a free agent!!

  8. Lukebakio is thé young player we must sign to replace Ramsey znd do way better. Hors box to box, dzngeroud on wings, a real top player. Lille wantd him to replace Pepe

  9. If rumour is all about that brought smile to Gooners, I would have been the happiest man 5 years ago..
