Götze, 18, has already been linked with all of Europe’s elite at one stage or another after bursting onto the Bundesliga stage in 2009. He has been a consistent performer for the Iduna Park outfit contributing 2 goals this season as the black and yellows have risen to the top of the championship.
The 1 cap midfielder has been the subject of much transfer speculation over the summer of 2010 and many believed his future lay away from Germany. Borussia fought of the interest of Italian giants Juventus and Inter during that window. It now seems though, with the January window on the horizon and Roberto Mancini seemingly having an endless transfer kitty that Götze could be Eastlands bound before too long.
An £8 Million fee has been touted around the media for the midfield marvel but the Dortmund hierarchy are likely to want double that to lose their prized youngster.
