Germany sensation Mesut Ozil has admitted he fancies a move to the Premier League and will have plenty of suitors, according to reports.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United have joined Barcelona in the race for the Werder Bremen starlet.

Ozil has been one of the stand out players at the World Cup and helped mastermind Germany’s 4-1 victory over England.

Ozil’s contract has just one year to run and Spanish newspaper El Mundo Deportivo has claimed the midfielder has repeatedly rejected offers of a new deal.

Ozil said: “To the top players, the Premier League is attractive. You look at what Manchester United and Chelsea have achieved over the last five years and you see it would be easy to be successful at two clubs like that.

“I see what Michael Ballack achieved at Chelsea and the quality of players he played with and the temptation becomes obvious.

“Trophies are what matters to me. There are two teams in England always at the top and of course that's attractive.”

Barcelona had previously been in pole position to land Ozil and were planning on sending former Arsenal midfielder Alexander Hleb back to Germany as part of the deal.

Now, though, the Premier League is looking the most likely destination for Ozil and Ballack could put in a good word on behalf of the Premier League champions as they go in search of Joe Cole’s replacement.
