According to reports, Mesut Ozil is demanding a huge signing fee if he joins Spanish La Liga side FC Barcelona in January.
Mesut Ozil is willing to return to La Liga to join his former-rivals Barcelona if they agree to pay a big signing on fee, as per Diario Gol.
With just about six months remaining on his contract with the North London club, it’s looking more likely that the attacking midfielder will be jumping ship and if Arsenal want any money for playmaker at all, they need to sell him in the January transfer window.
The Catalan side can allegedly bring in the 29-year-old for about £30million although will possibly have to pay the aforementioned fee as well.
This is despite Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger claiming that neither Mesut Ozil or Sanchez will be leaving anywhere during the winter transfer window, claiming that they’ll both leave on a free next summer season since neither looks willing to remain.
The German has also been linked with a transfer to league rivals Manchester United where he can link up with his former Real Madrid manager, Jose Mourinho. It’s believed that he wants to remain in the English Premier League while there are also claims that the German is trying to seal a £330k-weekly deal at his next side.
