Reports from Italy suggest that Manchester United and Italian giants Inter Milan will battle it out for the German’s signature in January.

According to Calciomercato, an online portal based in Italy, Arsenal have told both United and Inter that Mesut Ozil will be available for £20 million when the transfer window slums open.


Recent reports have linked the 29-year-old whose birthday is today with a move to the Old Trafford where he will be re-united with former Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho.

The midfielder has been subject of criticism for his below par displays for the gunners in what seems to be an underwhelming season for the North London club.

Ozil’s current contract expires in the summer of 2018 and Arsenal will fancy their chances on cashing in on him now rather than leaving him to walk a way a free agent.
