REPORTS: Arsenal To Launch January Move For “Dangerous” Wonderkid
Arsenal are considering a £35million January bid for German wonderkid Mario Goetze, according to reports.
Gunners chief executive Ivan Gazidis has reignited speculation after confirming Arsenal have “significant funds” available for the January transfer window, with some suggesting that the 19-year old is their No1 target.
Rumours this summer reported that Arsenal did lodge a bid for the German superstar but was unable to complete the deal before the end of the transfer window.
“Certainly in January and next summer there are significant funds available to bolster the team,” Gazidis revealed.
“The important thing from our perspective is – and this is something that Arsène has been extremely disciplined in over time – that we are not just going to spend money because we are under short-term pressure.
“We are going to make sure that the players we bring in are the right players.”
Gazidis’ comments will ease the fears of many Arsenal supporters with some fans questioning the ambition of the club after losing Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri in the summer.
The talented 19-year-old Goetze featured recently in a Champions League fixture against Arsenal, and Arsene Wenger has made no secret of his admiration for the highly sought after midfielder.
“He is a provider,” Wenger recently insisted. “He is the one who has the best assists in Germany and is the most dangerous player. He comes in from the right side and links in well with the strikers.”
