The Bundesliga transfer window has been closed, but the Bundesliga team can still sign free agents. According to "Kicker", Berlin Hertha is still negotiating with Gotze.
In an interview last month, Gotze stated that he had no plans to retire. At the time, he also emphasized that "an ambitious Bundesliga team" would suit him well.
