With the winter transfer window fast approaching, the infamous 'Rumour Mill' is kicking into gear.

Last month saw reports suggest that Jose Mourinho is prepared to sell Henrikh Mkhitaryan mere months after signing the Armenian for £26 million.

Those rumours have since been quelled, with Mkhitaryan recently making his feelings clear that he wants to stay and fight for his place.

Elsewhere, Cesc Fabregas has been linked with a £20 million move to Manchester City having dropped down the pecking order at Chelsea under Antonio Conte.

The Spaniard is inevitably considering his options, but there's no chance he'll be allowed to join a title rival half way through the season, especially with Chelsea flying high at the top of the table.

A fresh transfer rumour has now surfaced and it's quite possibly the most ridiculous yet.

According to The Sun, Manchester United are monitoring Mesut Ozil's contract situation at Arsenal, with Mourinho plotting a move to reunite with the former Real Madrid midfielder.

The Red Devils are reportedly willing to give Ozil £250,000-per-week wages, gazumping the £200,000-per-week extension he's being offered in north London.

You know it's a slow news day when Arsenal's star player - who has every intention of putting pen to paper on a new deal - is being linked with one of their biggest rivals.

That's the opinion of football fans, who have come out in force to slam The Sun's claim and insist there's no chance of Ozil joining United.

Here's how Twitter reacted.

Arsenal fans will be secretly fearful of history repeating itself - Robin van Persie joined United in 2012 - but it's very unlikely.

It seems inevitable that Ozil will extend his stay at the Emirates Stadium, with Arsene Wenger recently claiming talks are "moving along".

"There is nothing really concrete enough to talk about," he said. "It is moving along."

And a week earlier, the Frenchman insisted Ozil is happy at Arsenal having reached the prime of his career.

He said: "We are always in touch and that's our desire. Mesut is 28 years old. He is in the prime of his career. We want him to contribute to the success of the club in the future.

"They want to be happy. They are happy at the club and I want them to commit to the club because I believe they are in the right place."
