Mesut Ozil primed to join Manchester United?

Arsenal star could be on the move

Mesut Ozil has been in and out of the Arsenal team so far this season.

The German playmaker completed only his second 90 minutes of the season in Arsenal’s win over Newcastle United last weekend.

Arsenal’s number ten often splits opinion on whether his decisiveness in the final third cancels out questions over his work-rate.

There was a lot of noise over Ozil’s future before he signed a new deal and it looks like the talk has begun again.

Our traders believe a reunion with Jose Mourinho could be on. The German midfielder is now 2/1 to swap London for Manchester United.

Coral’s John Hill said: “Once again Mesut Ozil is being linked with a move away from Arsenal, and that has prompted a flurry of bets for the German midfielder to join Manchester United this summer.”

But there could be a caveat to any deal that may happen, with Arsenal looking for defensive reinforcements.

“The two clubs could become involved in a swap deal once again as Eric Bailly has been linked with the Gunners,” Hill added.

Arsenal are still looking for the perfect formula in defence.

New signing Sokratis played arguably his best game for the club since his summer arrival against Newcastle but the squad may need freshening up again.

In Ozil’s case, there are suitors in the Premier League and abroad but after just penning a new contract it will take huge money to prise him away from the Gunners.

**Mesut Ozil’s next club
2-1 Manchester United, 4-1 Barcelona, 7-1 Manchester City 10-1 Bayern Munich, Dortmund, Inter Milan

**Eric Bailly’s next club
5-2 Arsenal, 4-1 Tottenham, 6-1 Villarreal, 8-1 AC Milan, 10-1 PSV
