Borussia Monchengladbach's in-demand goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen has been told by the club to decide his future.

The German international has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona in recent weeks as the La Liga champions search for a replacement for Victor Valdes.

Valdes is expected to depart the Nou Camp when his contract expires at the end of the season and Ter Stegen has been mooted as his long-term successor between the sticks.

Arsenal have also been linked with a move for the 21-year-old as Arsene Wenger looks to intensify competition for the number one jersey at the Emirates.

Wojciech Szczesny remains the undisputed first choice at the moment and the Daily Star reported that the Gunners needed to stump up £10.2m to land Ter Stegen.

With his future at the Bundesliga club unclear, Ter Stegen has been told by Monchengladbach's club direcotr Max Eberl that he must make a decision on his future soon.

With Ter Stegen's contract set to expire in the summer of 2015 the club are keen to extend it but whilst Eberl admits discussions have been productive, no deal has yet been agreed.

"We had very good discussions," he revealed to Bild.

"In the end, Marc has to make a decision. There are many advantages that speak for us and Marc has a wise head.

"What is clear is that he eventually has to come to a decision."
