Mesut Ozil is desperate to join Barcelona this summer, according to reports in Spain.
The German international was recently linked with a move to the Camp Nou as a replacement for Neymar.
Don Balon (via the Express) has now sparked fresh claims that the midfielder is keen on a move to the Spanish side.
According to the report, Ozil has instructed his agent to contact Barcelona and seal a move before the transfer window closes.
Barcelona are looking to sign Coutinho but Liverpool are not interested in selling and Don Balon believes Ozil is keen to make the move instead.
To make their claim sound more realistic, the Spain based newspaper rounded their report up by stating that Barca are now considering making a move for Ozil.
This sound so ridiculous and I don’t know what to make of it. Ozil has stated several times that he is happy at Arsenal but somehow Don Balon thinks otherwise.
Even if the player wanted a move away from Arsenal, will he be going around offering himself to another club? Besides, Barcelona are no longer the European powerhouse they used to be, so there isn’t anything special that would thrill a player like Ozil who has already played at the top level with Real Madrid.
Don Balon haven’t got a single transfer news spot on this summer and they have continued their ridiculous journalism. Obviously, they thought building a transfer story about Ozil because he has just one year left in his contract will sell papers but it has turned out to be an epic failure.
