West Ham are said to be keen to bring in the Borussia Dortmund attacking midfielder, as Manuel Pellegrini looks to add to his options.
With Manuel Lanzini out injured, West Ham are almost certainly going to need to add creativity this summer, and Gotze would bring that in abundance.
The one concern with Gotze is his fitness issues, but he is a risk worth taking.
If West Ham can keep Gotze fit then he would surely be their most exciting addition for years.
The 26-year-old is regarded as one of the most talented midfielders in European football and has scored the winning goal in a World Cup final, making him a hero in Germany.
The thought of having Gotze linking up with Marko Arnautovic and, eventually, Lanzini should be enough to excite any West Ham fan, and if Pellegrini can get a deal over the line, it would be a seriously impressive piece of business.
