Goretzka has one year left on his contract at the Veltins-Arena, and is unlikely to sign a new contract. He could move to Bavaria this summer or join Bayern on a free transfer next year.
The player himself has kept very quiet about his future. When asked about links to Arsenal during the Confederations Cup, the midfielder remained coy, and said he wanted to concentrate on his performances at the tournament. He is now on holiday after Germany’s Confederations Cup win, and it is likely that any developments on his transfer will occur once he returns to Schalke for pre-season.
