German starlet linked with Gunners  

Friday, 5 June 2009

Werder Bremen midfielder Mesut Ozil has been linked with Arsenal by German tabloid Bild. The 20-year-old German international joined the UEFA Cup Finalists in January 2008 from Schalke and has since established himself at the heart of Werder’s midfield making 28 appearances last term as the Weserstadion outfit enjoyed success in the German Cup.

Valencia and Juventus are also rumoured to be keeping tabs on the left-footed playmaker, whose current deal with Werder expires in 2011. An improved three year deal is known to be on the table, but with big-money offers likely this summer, coach Thomas Schaaf could allow Ozil to follow Brazilian star Diego out of the door.
