Inter looking to tie up Mesut Ozil in January 0

Posted on September 23, 2017 by David Nugent

As one of my colleagues revealed earlier, Arsenal now look resigned to losing German playmaker Mesut Ozil. The 28-year-old’s contract is up next summer and it now looks highly unlikely he will sign a new deal.

Like teammate Alexis Sanchez, the Germany international has turned down numerous big money offers of a new deal at the Emirate Stadium and looks set to leave the north London club in the near future.

According to the Daily Mirror via TMW, ambitious Italian outfit Inter are set to hold talks in January with the playmaker about a summer move. Any move next summer would leave the Gunners empty-handed.

Juventus midfielder Juan Cuadrado insists that he’s happy he stayed in Turin, despite the likes of Arsenal showing an interest a number of weeks ago. The Colombian international was reportedly the subject of a €25m bid from Arsenal this summer and looked on his way out as the Serie A champions signed Douglas Costa from Bayern Munich and Federico Bernardeschi from Fiorentina.

However, the 29-year-old remained with Juve and is now enjoying a real upturn in form – three goals scored and created in four Serie A appearances. And Cuadrado denied claims that he was ever looking for a way out of Juventus, insisting he’s happy in Turin and the club are doing everything to keep him content.

Arsene Wenger remains the keen admirer of Raheem Sterling’s qualities and is reportedly thinking about going back for the Manchester City winger in January.

The Citizens are likely to use Wenger’s interest in the 22-year-old English international to leverage a deal for Alexis Sanchez as potential swap deal is already being mooted by the Mirror.

The Chilean star is unlikely to extend his deal with the north London club and although Wenger would rather not see him leave for Premier League rivals he will make sure to appease Arsenal fans with a respectable replacement.

Things appear to be getting rather complicated in the Alexis Sanchez transfer saga.

The Chilean superstar had been pursued by Manchester City throughout the summer transfer window but the Citizens’ £60 million attempt ended up being unsuccessful since Arsenal failed to sign a replacement before the end of the window.

Pep Guardiola was left frustrated with Arsenal’s apparent incompetence and is expected to make a fresh approach in order to land the 28-year-old in January. However, the situation appears to has changed dramatically as the Manchester City boss is now facing competition from his fierce rival Jose Mourinho.

Premier League club Arsenal are said to be plotting a January move for Paris Saint-Germain forward Lucas Moura.

The Gunners are apparently ready to reignite the long-standing spark and push for a move for the Brazilian star whose place in the team is coming under jeopardy.

Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil will miss Sunday afternoon’s Premier League clash with Chelsea through injury, reports the Express. The German international trained away from the squad with six other first-team players on ahead of Thursday’s Europa League clash, and still hasn’t recovered in time for the trip to Stamford Bridge.

Arsene Wenger admitted the 28-year-old was a doubt along with midfielder Aaron Ramsey for this weekend’s meeting with the Premier League defending champions, meaning the Gunners boss will be forced into some changes. Without Ramsey in the side, Mohamed Elneny or Francis Coquelin could deputise. Without Ozil for Sunday’s game, Danny Welbeck could replace him.

Posted on September 14, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

According to ESPN, Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti could return to England in search for a new challenge if he exits the Allianz Arena this season, and the Arsenal job is believed to be one he could end up pursuing.

Ancelotti won the German Bundesliga title and DFL Supercup in his first season in Germany, but there’s reports of discontentment behind the scenes after their early Champions League exit and failure to reach the German Cup final.

Arsene Wenger has stated the new season under pressure among Arsenal supporters following their poor start in the Premier League, and defeat to Chelsea on Sunday could almost make his position untenable.

If reports coming from Germany are anything to go by, Mesut Ozil will pack his bags and leave Arsenal on a free transfer next summer.

German playmaker is in the final year of his deal with the north London club but it appears that negotiations over the contract extension have broken down and that Ozil has decided to walk away from Arsenal at the end of the season.

The 28-year-old has been one of the hottest transfer stories for months now as he is one of several Arsenal players nearing the end of their deal at the Emirates with the club actively trying to tie them down on new deals.
