Is Ozil unhappy?
Mesut Ozil apparently regrets joining Arsenal and has told his former club, Real Madrid, that he wants to return to the Bernabeu, according to reports in Spain.
These reports – mainly in Marca – have been picked up by The Metro, which adds that Ozil’s current deal runs out in a little over 18 months and that Arsenal are unwilling to meet his £250,000-a-week wage demands.
Arsenal will have to act fast of they want to prise Moussa Dembelefrom Celtic this January with reports Man Utd and Liverpool are both chasing the French forward.
Dembele has been in sensational form for the Scottish champions, scoring 17 goals in 27 appearances since joining this summer, and this has drawn the attention of the Premier League’s big guns.
The Metro suggests the Gunners had been in pole position to sign the 20 year-old but cites a report from Glasgow Live claiming Liverpool will launch an early £20 million bid in an attempt to lure the player to Anfield.
It is understood £10 million will be paid up front and the forward offered a £60,000-a-week deal.
Will the Gunners do any big business this January in order to get Arsene Wenger that Premier League title he so desperately craves?
According to Don Balon, via The Daily Star, Wenger will reportedly pay almost any price to sign Real Madrid ace Marcos Llorente.
However, we are told Arsenal’s chances of signing the 21 year-old are said to be slim as Llorente, currently on loan at Deportivo Alavés, dreams of playing for Madrid and follow in the footsteps of his father, great uncle and grandfather
Arsene Wenger is reportedly ready to make a big-money move for Real Madrid’s Spanish starlet, Marcus Llorente.
The Real Madrid academy star is on Wenger’s radar and the Spanish press are stating that the Gunners are ready to spend big to get their man.
The Real Madrid academy product is coveted at the Emirates, according to Don Balon, after impressing during his current loan spell at Deportivo Alaves.
It’ll be an uphill battle for Arsene Wenger, however, given Llorente’s father, grandfather and even his great uncle are all alumni of Los Blancos and he dreams of being a regular there.
The 21-year-old has made two league appearances.
