Jose Mourinho sanctions big January bid for Mesut Ozil

Van Dijk

His contract expires in June and the German has made it clear he's not going to sign a new deal, so it's a case of when, not if, he leaves the Emirates now.

The January transfer window is now open so clubs are working hard trying to strengthen their squads for the second half of the season and put deals in place for the summer.

Juventus are reportedly ready to pounce for Mesut Ozil if Manchester United fail to sign the Arsenal midfielder this month.

The German playmaker is in the previous year of his contract with the Gunners, and according to Corriere dello Sport, ther conditions are now ideal for Juve to bring in Ozil.

Both players are of Turkish-German descent and have played together at Real Madrid and for the national side.

Juventus want to sign Arsenal star Mesut Ozil for free in the summer. Currently, Arsenal are sixth on the table, massive 23 points behind league leaders Manchester City.

Ozil has expressed a desire to test himself in a new league - having already played in the Bundesliga, La Liga and the Premier League - and a move to Turin would offer him a first taste of Serie A football.

The German worldwide could decide to see-out the final six months of his deal and seal a lucrative free transfer move in the summer but it seems United are keen to secure his signature now.

And even though he's struggled at times this season, he still has four goals and five assists in 18 league appearances for the Gunners so far, proving he's one of the best midfielders around.
