Borussia Dortmund chief Hans-Joachim Watzke has scoffed at Arsenal's interest in Mario Gotze next month.Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is expected to try again for Gotze after failing with a bumper offer for the German last summer.

"Excuse me please: you can't serious. Not in the next few years, anyway."
