Rumours circulating recently in the German and Spanish press regarding the future of classy number 10 Mesut Ozil. With reports that he is indeed feeling unsettled at the Bernabeu and supposedly wants out of ‘Los Galacticos’.
The constant reinforcement of players in similar type positions is said to have caused Ozil great displeasure as well as the fact that the manager and coach who first brought him to the club, Jose Mourinho has departed for pastures blue at Chelsea.
Arsene Wenger, always having an eye for a good deal, is aware that the German international may be looking for an escape route and could be tempted to make an excellent offer for such a player with world class abilities. At a team like Arsenal, Ozil would no doubt be the star man, a role he’s unfamiliar with at Madrid with Ronaldo, Ramos and Casillas hogging the spotlight.
With Madrid set to bid for Gareth Bale and Luis Suarez, Ozil could be set to lose his place in the starting XI, especially if the club bring in Bale whose premier position is exactly where the Arsenal target currently plays, attacking midfield, slotting in behind the striker.
Obviously with great talent comes great interest with the current Premier League Top 4 all interested in signing the German maestro. With the lure of working under former manager Mourinho at Chelsea, as well as playing for current champions Manchester United tempting, Arsenal have the upper hand due to the lack of pure, quality players able to play in behind the striker.
Ozil would be guaranteed a starting berth each game and with Arsenal set to spend big this summer, the project at Arsenal is certainly one not to scoff at. Working under another brilliant manager in Arsene Wenger, with the fact he boss speaks fluent German a massive plus.
For Real Madrid to part ways with their number 10, a large fee needs to be stumped up, whatever the supposed fee however, it will no doubt be totally worth it for the established German international who could well be Arsenal’s final piece in the premiership puzzle.
