Arsenal Transfer News: Gunners To Make £38 Million Mesut Ozil Bid?

Published June 22, 2014 by gossipzoo


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is considering making a 38 million move for Real Madrid’s attacking midfielder Mesut Ozil, according to the Sun.

The Gunners boss is under increasing pressure to spend big this summer and with just over a week left of the transfer window, has set his sights on the Germany international.

Wenger has missed out on a number of top targets so far such as Stevan Jovetic, Gonzalo Higuain, Luis Suarez and Karim Benzema, but is prepared to splash the cash to land Ozil.

Arsenal are also interested in Ozil’s team-mate Angel Di Mairia, and while Madrid are prepared to enter talks over a deal, the Argentine isn’t willing to join the North Londoners.

Ozil, 24, was one of Real’s key players for two years but questions have since been raised over his Bernabeu future due to the expected arrival of Gareth Bale from Tottenham.

The Welshman would likely take Ozil’s spot in the Spanish capital, leaving the former Werder Bremen man out in the cold.

Meanwhile, Wenger, whose only signing so far this summer has been Yaya Sanago on a free from Auxerre, has accused the media of “brainwashing” fans into thinking there is a crisis at the Emirates.

Arsenal lost their opening Premier League game 3-1 at home to Aston Villa but responded by beating Fulham by the same scoreline at the weekend.

Arsenal Transfer News: Mesut Ozil Deal Very Close, Medical Underway

Published October 12, 2013 by gossipzoo


Big news for Arsenal.

According to a number of outlets, including Sky Sports News and John Cross at the Mirror, the deal to bring Mesut Ozil to the Emirates is nearing completion. Sky Sports suggest that the German international midfielder is currently undergoing a medical in Germany ahead of the big money move to the Emirates.

Here’s SkySports take on it:

Arsenal are understood to be closing on a deal for Real Madrid playmaker Mesut Ozil. He is believed to be undergoing a medical in Germany, with the Gunners looking to avoid any potentially costly delays.

Cross meanwhile confirmed that Ozil wasn’t keen on a move initially, but that Arsenal have convinced him, and that he will line up through the middle of Arsenal’s attack, with Santi Cazorla out on the left.

That deal would cost Wenger’s side a massive 42.5 million, which would significantly eclipse the biggest fee ever paid for Andrey Arshavin, which was just 15million.

Conspiracy theorists had mischieviously suggested that Tottenham Hotspur supremo Daniel Levy had attempted to delay the Gareth Bale move to Real Madrid in order to impede Arsenal’s capacity to deal with Madrid, according to Sky Sports Spanish correspondent Guillem Balague, but such claims will look more foolish if this speedy deal is completed.

Arsenal have also been linked with a 25m move for Angel di Maria, as well as a potential loan deal for Chelsea striker Demba Ba and a permament move for Palermo striker Abel Hernandez.

If all of these deals come off, it will be a successful end to a relatively quiet and disappointing transfer window for Arsene Wenger, who has been linked with major deals throughout the summer.
