The incredibly talented 18-year-old has been causing a sensation in the Bundesliga for quite some time and is quickly regarded as one of the most promising young talents in the game.
Wirtz is now being heavily followed by Premier League giants Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool, although Bayern Munich are in the strongest position to sign.
However, a report from Bild says Arsenal are also working to win the race to sign Wirtz in a potential ambitious move that could cost more than £40m.
Wirtz can currently be provided at Arsenal, with Mikel Arteta in need of a long-term replacement for Mesut Ozil in this attacking midfield. The German national team seems to have similar qualities to compatriot Ozil and the fans would love to see such a playmaker again at the Emirates Stadium.
