Ozil has been offered to Barcelona

Ozil has made it clear he wants to stay with Arsenal

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has been offered to Barcelona.

Ex-Real Madrid player is inside the final year of his current deal and despite public utterances, negotiations over a new contract are yet to open.

According to Don Balon, the 28-year-old midfielder’s camp have employed an intermediary close to Barca and the German has been offered to the Catalans.

Ozil doesn’t want to spend a year playing in the Europa League and wants to return to Spain.

Nonetheless, the message came back that Barca have other priorities. The Catalans are also reluctant to make a hostile move on Arsenal, with their relationship deteriorating over their failed pursuit of Hector Bellerin.
