Arsenal is keeping a tab on the situation regarding Borussia Dortmund attacking midfielder Mario Gotze, according to German outlet Bild.
The 26-year-old attacking midfielder has scored seven goals and provided seven assists during this season, but his future is being considered at Dortmund.
According to a report in the Mirror, the Gunners will have just £40 million to spend this summer unless a Champions League qualification spot is secured.
Further, any potential move for Gotze will solely be dependent on the tonights Europa League final with Chelsea.
The Germany international may be available for a reduced fee, and Arsenal are seemingly prepared to meet his wage demands of £150k-a-week.
Gunners boss Unai Emery is looking for reinforcements in the summer to get a creative midfielder who can supply the ball on both the wings.
Gotze may be the ideal signing that Arsenal fans would like to see at the Emirates.
For too long now the club has regressed and tonight could see them return to Europe’s elite club competition and start on the long road back towards major honours.
Arsenal desperately needs players like Gotze in the squad, who can add force to the midfield for the Gunners to become a competitive side challenging for Premier League once again.
The former Bayern performer would fit effortlessly into Emery’s system at Arsenal, and if they win the Europa League, they could bring the Dortmund star to North London.

In other Arsenal transfer news, Ryan Fraser has been linked with a move to North London this summer, as his contract expires in 2020.
The 25-year-old Fraser has become a hot property after an impressive season that saw him scoring eight goals and adding a total of 15 assists to his name.
It was his best season, and the reports suggest Gunners will again step up their pursuit for the Scottish player after the finals of the Europa League.
Fraser has scored 15 times in all competitions, and while pairing with Callum Wilson, the duo have created a dazzling partnership at the Vitality Stadium.
Arsenal arguably has better strikers in the form of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette, and Fraser could be a great addition to their attack.
