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.More news: Bomb blast kills worshippers in Adamawa mosque
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.More news: Snow, 75mph gales and heavy rain to SMASH Britain TOMORROW
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.More news: Woman Proudly Displays 'F**k Trump' On Her Truck, Pays The Price
