Gotze.... Gunners interested

This player has been the revelation of the German League this season. He is just 18 years old and made the first team last season. He plays with the current champions Borussia Dortmund and is heavily mentioned as a target for the Gunners. The player I'm talking about is the next big thing and a German superstar.

The player is Mario Gotze.

Mario Gotze was born in Memmingen, Germany on June 3, 1992. He is 5' 6" and plays primarily as an attacking midfielder. He is a product of the Borussia Dortmund youth academy, which he joined when he was eight years old.

Mario Gotze made his debut as a late substitute against FSV Mainz 05 on November 21, 2009. This season, however, has been his breakthrough season. Gotze made 41 appearances in all competitions, scoring eight goals and recording 13 assists, with his best performance coming against runners-up Bayer Leverkusen, scoring a goal and facilitating two assists in the 3-1 away victory, helping Dortmund win the title.

Gotze is one of the best players this season despite his young age and is blessed with speed, technical skill and creativity. German legend Mathias Sammer remarked, "Gotze is one of the best talents we ever (Germany) had."

Gotze is now a full German international and has made four appearances so far since making his debut on November 17, 2010 against Sweden. Gotze is a potential, future world class player and superstar and is valued at around 20 million pounds by his club.

In my opinion, he is going to become a top player and a huge star, but with that value, it is highly unlikely that he's going to move and his club, Borussia Dortmund, have already stated that there is no chance of selling him.
