Chelsea fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern cannot believe what they are reading in the Daily Star, with the publication claiming that the Blues are eyeing a summer move for Arsenal attacking midfielder Mesut Ozil.
Ozil, 26, was Arsenal’s club record signing – costing the Gunners £42.5 million after signing from Spanish giants Real Madrid in 2013.
The German International has had a mixed time at the Emirates Stadium, with him some weeks being regarded as useless and other weeks regarded as world-class.
A number of Chelsea fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern feel this would be a pretty impressive signing, but most admit the deal looks unlikely to materialise.
Meanwhile, a small bunch of Arsenal fans over by the dartboard in the tavern feel this would be a nightmare losing one of the club’s best players, especially to a rival club.
