Arsenal need to find £30 million to land Borussia Dortmund star Mario Gotze. The Daily Mail says the Gunners want to use Tuesday's Champions League visit of Borussia Dortmund to cement their interest in the 19-year-old.

Arsenal sent two scouts to watch Goetze score the winner in the weekend 1-0 win over Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga.

And chief executive Ivan Gazidis, together with key negotiator Richard Law, will discuss the club's interest in Goetze with Dortmund officials this week.

But Arsenal will be told it will take at least £30m to prise the youngster away from Germany in January - double Arsenal's current record outlay for Andrey Arshavin when he moved from Zenit St Petersburg in 2009.
