Mesut Ozil is the subject of transfer interest from unnamed clubs, according to a ‘representative’ of the Arsenal midfielder.
Ozil joined the Gunners for a club-record £42million in summer 2013, and has been their best player so far this season, recording 16 Premier League assists in just 25 games.
But reports broke on Saturday that the German international was frustrated and disappointed with a lack of top-level trophies won during his time at the Emirates Stadium, and that he wished to leave.
Those claims came from Spanish newspaper Marca, and now German daily Bild have added fuel to the rumours.
They claim that ‘a representative’ of the 27-year-old has told them of interest from other clubs.
“It is well known and true that Arsenal want to extend with Mesut,” Bild claim they were told. “It is also true that there are constantly other requests for him. Mesut is a world champion, the most creative player in Europe, Germany’s top player – so it is clear that top clubs show their interest in him.”
Rumours in two leading European newspapers on the same day? Looks like someone wants a new contract. Or at least his ‘team’ wants to get him one.
