Cape Town - Inter
Milan president Erik Thohir has revealed that the club are exploring
the possibility of making a January move for Arsenal midfielder Mesut
The future of the Germany internal remains up in the air as he has
yet to agree new terms at the Emirates Stadium, with his current deal
due to run out in June 2018.
The Gunners may decide to cash in on Ozil in the new year to prevent
him from leaving on a free transfer at the end of the season, and Inter
have emerged as an interested party.
Thohir, though, is wary of making January signings, but told Metro TV News: "He [Ozil] is definitely one of those players we are looking at.
"But the last January signings of [Lukas] Podolski and [Xherdan]
Shaqiri proves winter signings can fail to live up to expectations."
The 28-year-old has often been criticised for a perceived lack of
work rate during his time with Arsene Wenger's side, and only returned
to action against West Brom on Monday after not being considered for
their three previous games.
