Barcelona have Arsenal ace Mesut Ozil on their radar for January.

El Mundo Deportivo says Barca will turn to Ozil if they fail to land Liverpool ace Philippe Coutinho in January.

Coutinho, 25, was keen to move to Spain last summer after the Catalan giants sold Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain for a world record fee of £200 million.

Liverpool blocked the move, but Barca are set for another tilt at the Brazilian international next month.

However if the Merseysiders refuse to do business again in January, then Barca will turn their attention to Ozil.

The Arsenal playmaker’s current deal at the Emirates runs out at the end of the season and he can sign a pre-contract with an overseas club next month.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has made a last ditch effort to keep the German international at the Emirates, with an offer to make Ozil the highest earner in the club’s history.
