Liverpool monitor Real Madrid midfielder

Published Add your comment

Liverpool will monitor Mesut Ozil's situation at Real Madrid after the German midfielder was given a kick up the backside by manager Jose Mourinho.

The Sunday Mirror reports how the 23-year-old has not enjoyed the best of seasons at the Santiago Bernabeu, and could be allowed to leave the club at the end of the season.

Brendan Rodgers is a huge fan of Ozil, and with Liverpool having held a long-term interest in bringing him to Anfield, a move to Merseyside looks increasingly likely.

Ozil - who has 41 caps and 12 goals for Germany - is still under contract in Spain until 2016, but following the arrival of fellow playmaker Luka Modric, his future in Madrid appears increasingly uncertain.

Liverpool already have Nuri Sahin on loan from Real, and that relationship with Mourinho, could help push through negotiations between the two clubs, should Ozil become available.

The Reds tried to sign the player from Werder Bremen when he first moved to La Liga, and will hold out hope of finally landing their man.

In response to rumours that his extravagant social life is ruining his performances on the pitch, Ozil recently took to Facebook to clarify his situation.

"About the rumour I go often out at night: It's not true! Since new season started, I was almost never out. I train and work as a professional," he posted.
