Mesut Ozil & Arsenal

Arsenal fans are unlikely to see Mesut Ozil in action this week.

Ozil missed Sunday’s 1-0 win at Burnley through illness, and Arsene Wenger has reported the German will be absent from the Huddersfield match on Wednesday.

At the same time, Ozil will soon be able to start talking to clubs about a free transfer from the Gunners at the end of the season.

Ozil has been linked with a move to Barcelona in recent weeks. That story is being peddled by the Spanish press.

But, according to Arsenal legend Ian Wright, Man United look set to land Ozil for free.

Ozil to Manchester United for free

Speaking on BBC radio on Monday night, Wright expressed his belief in Ozil’s next career move:

Mesut Ozil on a free to Manchester United on a free looks a shoo-in. I’m sure Jose (Mourinho) would love to do that.

That would frighten me to death. He is a great talent and having great players around him would lift him up as well.

I’m sure him and his agent would not push it this far if they were going to sign (for Arsenal).
