Tuesday night's encounter between Borussia Dortmund and Arsenal provided Arsene Wenger with an ideal opportunity to rule the rule over German whizkid Mario Gotze.

According to the Daily Mail, the Frenchman was keeping a keen eye on the 19-year-old at the Signal Iduna Park, having made an enquiry as to his availability during the summer.

Gotze only displayed glimpses of his much vaunted talent, as the spoils between Arsenal and Dortmund were shared.

Wenger, though, is said to have been sufficiently impressed by the midfielder from his vantage point in the stands - where the Arsenal boss was forced to watch the game due to a touchline ban.

Robin Van Persie had given Arsenal the lead in Dortmund as Mikel Arteta, Yossi Benayoun and Per Mertesacker made their European debuts for the Gunners.

But, despite some stern resistance from Arsenal, Dortmund levelled in the closing minutes thanks to a superb volley from Ivan Perisic.
