A proposed January move for Manchester United and Arsenal target Mario Gotze is in doubt after the Borussia Dortmund midfielder tore a thigh muscle.

According to The Sun, Gotze will be sidelined for at least a month, which could potentially scupper any move away from Dortmund during the transfer window.

The 19-year-old is regarded as one of the finest young talents currently operating in European football and, hence, has consistently been linked with the likes of United and Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger has been outed as an admirer of Gotze and, it is claimed, the Gunners boss attempted to bring the Germany international to the Emirates Stadium in the summer.

However, Arsenal failed in their attempt to snare Gotze, and it has been speculated that a renewed bid would be launched in the winter.

Meanwhile, Sir Alex Ferguson is reported to have been monitoring the progress of Gotze with great interest, and the youngster has admitted a move to Old Trafford would appeal to him.

Gotze has been touted as a possible long-term successor to United legend Paul Scholes, although he has previously stated his ultimate ambition is to join Real Madrid.
