According to Don Balon, Arsenal could agree a swap deal with Barcelona which could involve Andre Gomes and Mesut Ozil in January.

Ozil, 28, is out of contract at the end of the season and can leave the Emirates on a free transfer – or for a cut-price fee in January.

The German international is refusing to pen a new deal in north London under Arsene Wenger.

Ozil has been heavily linked with a move away from the Emirate Stadium with previous reports suggesting he could be sold to Manchester United in a bid to reunite with Jose Mourinho.

However, according to Spanish news outlet Don Balon, Barca have upped their interest in Ozil.

Barca know Arsenal may be keen to cash in on Ozil in January rather than lose him for free at the end of the season.

Don Balon add that Barca are happy to sign Ozil instead of Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho, who has been tipped to head to the Nou Camp this season.

The Brazil international would cost Barca around £130m, whereas an Ozil deal could be completed for £20m.
