Leon Goretzka, the 22-year-old German midfielder, has been in good form of late. This has led to the player attracting some of the biggest clubs from the Premier League and outside it to secure his services in the next season. Currently, arch rivals Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are going in together in pursuit of the young prodigy.
Leon Goretzka has been instrumental for Schalke this season, scoring 5 goals in 26 appearances for the Bundesliga club. Alongside Max Meyer, he has played a very important part in making the midfield work well. It is being rumoured that Italian giants Juventus are also in the race to land the German youngster in Turin.
However, Arsenal are currently considered to be the frontrunner in the race for Leon Goretzka. With the possibility of mercurial playmaker Mesut Ozil leaving the Emirates Stadium this summer, Arsene Wenger has already been looking for someone who can provide stability and pace to the midfield. Leon Goretzka can be the perfect solution for the Frenchman’s woes regarding the composition of the team next season.
Arsenal, reportedly, is also looking to rope in Goretzka’s compatriot and teammate Max Meyer for the next season. Both the Germans are believed to have a good understanding with each other and the London team will look to capitalise on that chemistry to give them immediate results.
Schalke, meanwhile have put a price tag of £25million on the German youngster in case he leaves the club this summer. Leon Goretzka has exceptional ability to hold on to the ball for a long time during matches. He plays a crucial role with his defensive contribution to the team, intercepting in the middle of passes played between the players of opponent teams.
He is a strong player, acting as a defensive shield in front of the back four with an ability to tackle cleanly and snatch away the ball from the opponents. His concentration being tremendous, the only thing he needs to work upon is his crossing of long balls to form an attack near the rival goal.
Leon Goretzka has less than a year and a half left on his contract with Schalke and reportedly has no intention to extend it. With his amazing skill sets, the German midfielder looks to be destined for greatness with some of the biggest clubs in the world keeping themselves in the loop. Now only time will tell whether it will be any one club between Arsenal and Tottenham or will the 22-year-old midfielder submit his allegiance to one of the European giants like Juventus.
