Unai Emery has wasted no time in adding to his squad for the upcoming Premier League season.

The Spanish manager has already made the signing of Stephan Lichtsteiner, and is close to tying up moves for a number of other players.

Sokratis Papastathopoulos has long been linked with a £16 million move, and he is expected to be announced at the start of next month.

Emery is also close to agreeing a deal with Lucas Torreira and Bernd Leno, in deals which would cost roughly £45 million.

So the former Paris Saint-Germain manager has wasted no time in adding to his defence, but what about attack?

Emery is now considering making a move to bolster his attacking options, and he's aiming very high indeed.

The 46-year-old wants to sign Mario Gotze from Borussia Dortmund, the man who scored the winner for Germany in the 2014 World Cup final.

That would be a deal that surely most Arsenal fans will welcome given the German's pedigree.

And they've now been given a key boost in their pursuit.

It is now being reported by the Mirror that Mario Gotze is keen to move to England as he looks to revive his career.

The World Cup winner has endured a few tough years since 2014, and is believed to think that a move to England would be beneficial to his career.


It seems that if Arsenal want to make a move for the German, he would be more than happy to agree to a deal.

They do have competition, however.

It is said that four other Premier League clubs are interested.

Everton and West Ham are said to be keeping tabs on the 26 year old’s situation, while Leicester and Newcastle have both made enquiries.

If a club do want to sign him, he will most likely cost around £18 million.

Arsenal have a limited budget this season, but paying that fee for a player that has proven himself on the world stage could well be worth it.
