Mario Götze is one of the young, bright talents out there in world football today. He has proven that he has the potential to become one of the premier midfielders in this generation of world football.
During his first three seasons, the German starlet has experienced some success as an individual and with the whole team of Borussia Dortmund. He was part of the team that won the Bundesliga two years straight along with the DFB Cup in the 2011-2012 season.
With a young player like Götze being a pretty big part of the team's success, he is bound to have attracted some big clubs for transfers. Some Premier League clubs have been interested in the German.
Amongst those clubs is Arsenal. In the Guardian, it was reported that Arsenal were interested in signing Götze. However, soon after, Götze put Arsenal's hopes to bed by extending his contract with Borussia Dortmund (Daily Mail).
This would be a disappointment as Arsenal missed out on the chance to sign one of the young prospects in world football.
Here are some reasons why the Gunners will regret not having signed the German starlet.
