Arsenal target Kramer: Moving abroad has always interested me

The World Cup winner has been scouted by the Gunners while Tottenham and Real Madrid have also been linked the £12 million-rated 23-year-old
Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Christoph Kramer has revealed he would be open to a move away from Germany amid interest from Arsenal.

Goal revealed that the Gunners have been scouting the World Cup winner as they look for midfield reinforcements, while Tottenham and Real Madrid have also been linked with the 23-year-old.

And though his agent insisted that he is not thinking about any possible transfers at present, the player himself feels a move away from Bundesliga would help him develop his game.

Speaking to Hamburger Abendblatt, he said: "That [moving abroad] has always interested me. I would not be afraid.

"I want to find out what my limit is and I always strive for the very best."

On an article linking him with Real Madrid, he added: "I wish I had cut out and hung that article on my wall. To be linked with Real Madrid is an enormous honour for me."

Kramer is currently in the second season of a two-year loan deal with Gladbach from Bayer Leverkusen, with his impressive showings gaining him a number of admirers.

And the Germany international would be receptive to a return to his parent club should a move away not come to fruition.

"Of course [going back to Leverkusen] is an option for me, they have a good coach in Roger Schmidt and they play an attractive style of football which would also suit me."
