Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil demands huge signing bonus to join Barcelona

24 November 2017

The prospect of signing Ozil looks far more valuable in comparison.

Fenerbahce have been closely linked with Ozil for the past few seasons. Arsenal put a £250 000-a-week package on the table but he is yet to agree it and all signs points towards him leaving the club.

Andreu and Miguelsanz reported Sanllehi has already met in London with Ozil's agent, Erkut Sogut, and that "everything was practically closed", with Segura's green light thought to be the last hurdle in completing a January transfer.

Both Sanchez and Ozil's contracts at the Emirates run out in July 2018, and Arsenal remain keen on extending the pair's current deals at the club. Even if we ignore the frequent rumours of Smalling's imminent departure from Old Trafford, this is more than a little arrogant - unlike Mourinho, Southgate seems more inclined to give young players a chance. However, Barcelona have stolen a march on their rivals by holding talks with Ozil's representatives.

The star is set to move to the Spanish side for £17million and is demanding a £330,000-a-week salary, according to reports.

Ozil is an attractive option for Barca due to the fee - which could be around £17m - and the fact he can play in the Champions League knockout rounds. Losing Ozil would represent a significant blow for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger.

Bring on the rumours I say!

"I never questioned their commitment".

Arsenal have made it clear they want him to stay, and are prepared to make him the highest paid player at the club if he decides to sign a new deal.

"The rest of the team will come with them if they produce performances like that".
