Gotze’s future with Bayern has been a hot topic for debate in recent months following his difficult campaign last term.
The Germany international has insisted that he wants to stay at the Allianz Arena and fight for a starting role under incoming boss Carlo Ancelotti.
“I look forward to the new season in Munich and will do everything possible to be in top shape for my first training session under Carlo Ancelotti,” said Gotze.
But Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge recently hinted that Gotze’s future looks bleak at Bayern and that the forward should ‘evaluate’ his position at the club.
He said: “He knows what the club thinks and what the new coach thinks. Mario has to evaluate for himself whether he wants to play constantly.”
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger recently confirmed that he is looking for two more new star signings this summer to follow his deal for Granit Xhaka.
The Gunners have joined the race for wantaway Everton striker Romelu Lukaku.
The Belgian, who scored twice in a 3-0 win against Sweden last week, wants UEFA Champions League football, with Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain also reportedly interested.
