Mario Gotze named European Golden Boy

Arsenal target Mario Gotze succeeds Mario Balotelli as Tuttosport's European Golden Boy.

Borussia Dortmund playmaker Mario Gotze has been awarded the annual European Golden Boy award by Italian publication Tuttosport.

He becomes the second consecutive Mario to win the award after Manchester City's Mario Balotelli collected the accolade last year.

Gotze, 19, has been heavily linked with a move away from Germany, with Arsenal often being named as his most likely destination.

However, any speculation has been met with stubborn resistance from BVB, who insist the player is not for sale.

Previous winners of Tuttosport's award include Wayne Rooney, Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero and Rafael van der Vaart.
