Arsenal targets Kevin Grosskrueutz and Mario Gotze won't leave Borussia Dortmund until 2014, despite being heavily linked with a move to the Premier League.

Both players featured against Arsenal in this season's Champions League, leading the north Londoners to step-up their interest in the pair.

While Gotze is also attracting interest from Real Madrid, his teammate Grosskreutz says the pair are unlikely to depart in the near future.

"He cannot leave without me because we are always together. Gotze and I will stay until 2014," he said.

The news is a blow to Arsenal's transfer plans, with the club having spent time scouting Gotze, considered by many to be a star of the future.

The likelihood is that Dortmund's resolve will be tested in January, with Arsenal and Madrid two of those lining up a possible move.
