Why Barcelona are having doubts about signing Mesut Ozil from Arsenal

The 22-year-old star is now out with an injury and this season, he has scored 4 goals in 9 league games so far.

The 29-year-old's contract at The Emirates expires in June and the Gunners are willing to allow him to leave for free in summer or potentially cash-in for a cut-price deal in January.

Arsenal great Martin Keown has said that Mesut Ozil moving to Barcelona would be a big mistake for the German, with him turning down the opportunity to be the star of a team.

He tweeted: "Barcelona were offered Mesut Ozil last summer but decided against it".

Barcelona's fingers have already been burned once in the deal that brought Turan to the club from Atletico Madrid in a move initially agreed in July 2015, prior to his arrival in January.

Japan and USA markets are closed on Thursday for a holiday, while South Korean markets open later than usual due to school exams. Financial markets will keenly watch how the most important central bank strikes the right policy balance in the coming months.

According to Spanish outlet AS, Ozil would be on an income of €19million gross per year and will also ask for a sizeable signing-on bonus. We have rumours reported by The Mirror reporting that FC Barcelona are thinking about Ozil instead of Coutinho and that could be ideal.

Wenger is desperate to stop one of his best players joining Mourinho's Manchester United side on a free transfer and is ready to consider selling him to another club in January. Losing Ozil would represent a significant blow for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger.

In addition, there are also concerns over Ozil's physical robustness, with the ex-Wolfsburg man having missed 38 games across four-and-a-half seasons at Arsenal due to various fitness concerns.

"So I could mention who I like but will they go after them, who knows".
