Arsenal target Leon Goretzka has supposedly had it confirmed that he is coming to the Premier League, so dare we think twice about this new?

Arsenal’s midfield woes need solutions like a ham sandwich needs bread. They have to address the partnership of Aaron Ramsey and Granit Xhaka and either turn it into a trio – the preferred option – or swap someone, which is unfair to either, as they are both solid midfielders.

Anyway, Goretzka has supposedly had his future predicted, and not by a swampland soothsayer. No, German National Team GM Oliver Bierhoff has spoken up and said this about the FC Schalke man (as quoted by the Daily Star):

“We feel that England, because of the amount of money you have with TV rights, young talented players like Leroy Sane and Leon Goretzka are moving to England.”

Well then.

I must say that I see Bierhoff’s point, that the Bundesliga can’t keep losing players like this. But they produce so damn many superb young players that there’s just nothing that can be done about it. Some are going to leave.
