Arsenal are interested in signing Schalke star Leon Goretzka in January since they will need a replacement for Mesut Ozil.
However, reports in Germany emerged that the 22-year-old is not interested in joining the Premier League club at the moment and has his eyes set on the Nou Camp.
The young player is regarded as one of the best young players in Germany and has been monitored by a number of big clubs across Europe.
Goretzka will be out of contract by the end of the season and Schalke has already provided him with a new deal but to no avail as he wants to leave the club.
The news from Germany suggests that Arsenal should look elsewhere since Barca officials are in discussion with Schalke as they prepare January move for the player so that they could at least get some decent money from the player before his contract expires.
