In the middle of a season in which he is unable to play for Arsenal, a new suitor has appeared for Mesut Özil: Juventus. ‘Tuttosport’ assures that the Italian club is interested in bringing in the player.
‘Tuttosport’ assures that the club would like to take advantage of his services as he is not being played under an Arteta, that did not include him in his Europa League or Premier League teams.
Although the Italians may opt to make an offer during the winter market, the Turkish-born German’s contract ends in June 2021, so another plausible option is to wait until that date to incorporate him free of charge. Its market value is almost 6 million euros.
It should be remembered that the footballer’s current plan is to stay in England even though he is in the background. The interest that Tottenham Hotspur and Fenerbahçe has in him has already been reported, but Mesut continues with the idea of remaining part of the Gunners’ squad for the time being.
Özil has not taken the field since March 7, about nine months ago, for a Premier League match against West Ham United in which he got an assist. His experience in several of the world’s top leagues and his quality are the main reasons why he is on the Juventus agenda.
