Arsenal are reportedly among a trio of Premier League clubs interested in signing Borussia Dortmund midfielder Mario Gotze.
The 26-year-old, who scored the winning goal for Germany in the 2014 World Cup final, has since failed to find similar form and was not included in Joachim Low's squad for this summer's tournament.
According to Sky Sports News, the Gunners are joined by Everton and West Ham in tracking the midfielder, while Marseille and Valencia are also reportedly keeping tabs on the former Bayern Munich man.
Dortmund are allegedly determined to recoup the £22m they paid to bring Gotze back to the club from Bayern last summer, should a deal open up for the German international.
Gotze, who has spent the entirety of his career in his home country, scored two goals and assisted three others in 19 Bundesliga starts last term.
