Metro have utterly stunned Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they claim that Manchester City of all clubs are set to make a £32 million bid for Mesut Ozil!
The Gunners have seen their £42.5 million star signing struggle so far in his Gunners career and after coming in for a huge amount of stick, it seemed that Ozil was willing to consider life outside of England with Bayern Munich keen on him.
However now it seems that the German could well be offered the chance to stay in England with City reportedly keen on pushing a deal through.
The defending champions are no strangers to landing Arsenal players and Citizens manager Manuel Pellegrini is willing to sanction a £32 million deal when the transfer window re-opens.
As our Arsenal fans note, whilst Ozil may have left a fair bit to be desired this season so far, selling yet another top player to one of their title rivals and making a loss on the German would certainly not go down well.
Arsenal fans. Is this one of the most unlikely transfers you have heard about in a long while? Let us know your thoughts below.
