Spanish giants Barcelona look set to press ahead with a £60 million move for Arsenal star Mesut Ozil this summer, much to the displeasure of their fans here in the Transfer Tavern.
Our landlord is the one who has spotted the news in his copy of the Metro and the piece claims that the Catalans want to make the Germany international their next stellar signing.
It will be a bombshell for the Gunners fans here in the Tavern who feel they have started to see the very best of Ozil during the current campaign, with the player currently on 17 assists in the Premier League at present.
One Arsenal fan is popping his hard-earned cash into the fruit machine in an attempt to win the jackpot and he thinks Ozil would walk into the Barcelona side on current form, but is still hopeful that the Gunners can persuade him to stay at the Emirates Stadium for a little while longer.
Arsenal fans… Would you be sad to see the back of Ozil? Can you see him joining Barcelona?
