Schalke Interest in Mesut Ozil Revealed in Latest Rumours

Schalke Interest in Mesut Ozil Revealed in Latest Rumours

After three successful years in Spain, the 29-year-old completed a £42.5million switch to Arsenal in 2013.

Arsenal's last chance to recoup cash for the German is in January and it is a situation that also applies to Alexis Sanchez.

With the Germany worldwide adamant to run down his contract, he looks set to move away from the Emirates as a free agent, unless he is sold in January.

But Liverpool's determination to keep the Brazilian and his high price tag means a deal may be tough to finalise.

Accordingly, Ozil is now considered as Barcelona's "Plan B" for this January.

According to Mundo Deportivo, a fee of €20m (£17m) will be enough for the Gunners to part with Ozil rather than allow him to leave on a free when his contract expires in the summer.

Hi dear readers. Were you aware that the Spanish La Liga club Barcelona wanted to purchase Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool this summer?

Mundo Deportivo adds that Barca also admire PSG's Angel Di Maria, Monaco's Thomas Lemar and the Spurs duo of Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen, but believe it would be hard to land either one of this quartet in January.

While Arsenal have put numerous offers on the table, they have not managed to find a breakthrough, with Ozil refusing to put pen to paper on a new deal.

In fact he says they love the club.

Yet Gunners boss Arsene Wenger says he still believes Ozil and Sanchez want to stay at the club. "If it fits for both sides, it would be nice", Schalke exec Clemens Tonnies is quoted as saying by Kicker. If the club want them to stay beyond December [the January transfer window] they will follow.
