Gotze, 19, is seen as one of the brightest young talents in European football. He is reportedly interesting the Gunners as Arsene Wenger looks to reinvest some of the money brought in from the sales of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri.

He made his debut for Germany a year ago this month against Sweden becoming, along with Andre Schurrle who was substituted on at the same time, the first player born in the unified Germany to represent the national side. He now has ten caps to his name and is a fixture in the squad.

"I am really happy here," he told Sky television. "That is all that counts. I have a contract here until 2014 and I am more than happy.

"I think you can see that too and that is why I am happy to be here.

"We have so many amazing players in our side who try to push themselves to the limits in every training session and every game."
