Spurs and Arsenal battle for midfielder


Tottenham have joined Arsenal in the race for Schalke midfielder Leon Goretzka, according to the Sunday Mirror.

The 22-year-old has been a long term target of Arsene Wenger and apparently Tottenham’s recruitment team have made him a priority target.

Goretzka is out of contract with the Bundesliga outfit in six months’ time and is also attracting interest from Bayern Munich and Barcelona.

Whilst at VfL Bochum, Peter Neururer, Goretzka’s head coach said that he had “never seen an eighteen year old footballer which had a potential as Goretzka” and titled him as the “talent of the century”.

Goretzka has a potent eye for scoring goals and is known to possess good ball control ability and also has the ability to pick out passes for his teammates. At 6ft 2, Goretzka’s high-jumping ability helps him to win aerial battles even against the strongest and tallest defenders.

He can be deployed as a defensive midfielder, as well as a left or right winger and also in the position of playmaker.
