Mesut Ozil 'seriously' considering offers from two major European clubs, claims Piers Morgan

Arsenal fans are on a high after Arsene Wenger splashed a reported £30 million on Granit Xhaka this week.

It means the Gunners have already brought more senior outfield players than they did during the entirety of last summer.

However, while Wenger is concentrating on strengthening his Arsenal side, he also needs to focus on keeping his star players at the club.

With no Premier League title for 12 years and rarely getting to the latter stages of the Champions League, Arsenal are in danger of becoming a feeder club to European heavyweights.

If the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich came sniffing, some players may find it hard to say no with the guarantee of winning trophies every season.

And that could be the case with Mesut Ozil after Arsenal fan Piers Morgan shared what he had heard about the Germany international.

“Hearing worrying rumours re Mesut Ozil & discreet offers from Barca & Bayern that he’s seriously considering. #afc”

Many of you may be thinking: ‘What does Morgan know?’ or ‘Who cares about the rumours Morgan has heard?’

Love him or hate him, Morgan is one of Britain’s biggest journalists and owns season tickets at the club. He has some very respectable sources at the Emirates Stadium so his comments probably have some substance to it.


Arsenal supporters will obviously be very worried hearing this ‘rumour.’

Ozil produced 19 assists for the north London club in the Premier League, just one short of the record set by Thierry Henry. His form during the first half meant Arsenal looked on course to win their first title since 2004 but a collapse after the turn of the year saw them finish second, ten points behind Leicester.

Ozil's comments

An he hasn’t exactly reassured Arsenal fans that his future belongs in London. This week, he told reporters, per Sky Sports: "I still have two years on my contract with Arsenal, as you know, and we will be in talks with the club and we'll see what happens in the future.

"But as I said, now I'm concentrating on Euro 2016 in France, which is very important for me and my team after the last World Cup. Then later on, I will see what I do with Arsenal."

It certainly is a worry for Gooners as they fear a domino effect if one of their stars leave. If Ozil leaves, Alexis Sanchez is likely to follow suit leaving the club needing to replace their two most influential men.
