Arsenal’s Chief Scout was in the Westfalenstadion on Tuesday night watching German wunderkind, Mario Götze.

The 19-year-old is on the radar of most of Europe’s biggest clubs and Arsene Wenger is a clear admirer.

wearethenorthbank.com understands that Arsenal Chief Scout, Steve Rowley – along with another senior scout – were sent to Dortmund to watch the German international attacker in action in the Champions League Group F win over Olympiakos.

Götze impressed – as he did against Arsenal in the Group F opener – with another competent display from a central attacking midfield position.

Wenger rates Götze highly, and if Dortmund fail to qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League, they could be tempted to sell in January for the right offer.

Talking prior to the Dortmund game in September, Wenger said of Götze: “He is the provider, the one who had the best assists in Germany and is the most dangerous player.”
