Arsenal and Manchester United have been bossted in their chase for Germany ace Mesut Ozil after the midfielder told Werder Bremen to lower their demands, according to reports.

The 21-year-old’s performances at the World Cup sparked a flurry of interest in him this summer, catching the interest of Premier League giants as well as Barcelona.

Chelsea were also rumoured to be putting a package together to sign him but are now about to wrap up the signing of Ramires as an alternative.

With just one year to run on his contract, Ozil’s suitors are expected to want to pay less than the current £16 million asking price.

And according to the Daily Star, the player himself has asked his club to re-think his valuation so he can force a move away from the Bundesliga side.

He has recently threatened to run his contract down and move on a free transfer next summer, as Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger are aware of his situation.

The Prem duo are only willing to pay around £10 million to sign him this summer and Bremen may need to lower their demands significantly if they are to receive any money for their starlet.
