Arsenal will swap everyone for Mario Gotze

Arsenal are set to beat everyone else in order to capture Mario Gotze by offering £25million plus Andrei Arshavin and Nicklas Bendtner, who are just sort of sitting around the place anyway.  It's a bit like if I offered you this half used biro I've had sitting on my coffee table for about a year in exchange for some crisps.

The 19 year old playmaker played over 40 games last season, helping Borussia Dortmund win their first title in ten years by scoring eight goals and assisting a further twelve along the way.  We got those stats from Caught Offside by the way, I didn't just know that stuff.  I spent most of my research on this piece making that picture above and it isn't even funny at all.

Arsene Wenger on the other hand has been trying to bring Gotze to The Emirates for years and January might just be the time that he finally shells out some of that cash Arsenal have lying around.  Gotze would be the kind of player Wenger traditionally relies on to create goals out of nothing, seeing as it's probably a bit much to rely on Robin van Persie doing everything himself for the next five years.  He'll be driving the team bus next and I bet he even does that well by making it fly or something.
