Premier League giants linked with shock move for Arsenal £300,000-a-week star

The Premier League giants Manchester United are eyeing a January swoop for Arsenal creative midfielder Mesut Ozil.

According to the daily national tabloid newspaper The Daily Express, via The BBC, the Red Devils are plotting a swoop for Mesut once the transfer window reopens.

Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho is already thinking about ways to bolster his side for the second half of the campaign and is considering Ozil to improve his midfield.

Ozil signed a new deal with Arsenal earlier this year but faces an undetermined future at the club with a lot of speculation over his head.

The Turkish top-flight, Super Lig giants Fenerbahce are also thought to be interested in securing the signature of Mesut Ozil, who will not be short of variants should he decide to depart from the Emirates Stadiums at any point.

Ozil netted in Arsenal’s 2-1 win over Newcastle United this weekend, with Switzerland international Granit Xhaka netting the other goal for the north London giants.

The 29-year-old star retired from international football earlier this year after accusing the German national federation of being racist.
