Borussia Dortmund issue hands-off warning to Arsenal over Goetze

German Bundesliga champions Borussia Dortmund have told Arsenal to not bother with a potential pursuit of young gun Mario Goetze.

The 18-year old has turned heads with some of his performances for Die Schwarzgelben this season and has subsequently attracted plenty of interest from around Europe with the Gunners leading the show.

But Dortmund managing director Hans Joachim Watzke said that the club is not about to let the German international midfielder leave Signal Iduna Park for the Emirates, or anywhere else for that matter.

"We would not even think of selling Goetze until 2014 [when his contract runs out]. Even if another club owned oil fields or had billions of euros, it wouldn't make any difference," he said.
