Sky Sports News understands that
Arsenal are in ‘advanced talks’ with
Real Madrid to sign attacking
midfielder Mesut Ozil.
The 24-year-old German has been at
the Bernabeu since 2010 having
moved from Werder Bremen.
And Ozil could be heading to the
Emirates Stadium after Gareth Bale
left Tottenham for the Spanish
capital for a reported world record
fee of £85.3m.
Ozil has played more than 100 games
for Real who beat off competition
from Arsenal and Manchester United
to sign their man following the World
Cup in South Africa.
But now the Gunners are close to
securing the player they wanted
three years ago in a deal reportedly
Manchester United and Paris Saint
Germain have also been strongly
linked with Ozil in recent days.
