Juventus are preparing to make their move for Arsenal’s star man Mesut Ozil according to reports from Italy.
Arsenal’s situation being as it is, the contract talks have become a drawn out process and very problematic for the club, who are also locked in talks over a new deal for Alexis Sanchez.
The Gunners currently sit fifth in the Premier League table and are due to face Bayern Munich in the round of 16 tie against Bayern Munich in the Champions League, which, if the current form is anything to go by, is pointing towards another disappointing season – a failure to win anything this time around may as well result in a failure to hold on to either Alexis or Ozil.
While Juventus’ hopes to sign Alexis have turned bleak due to the repercussions that his wages might have on their wage structure, the Italian giants are now reportedly after Ozil, the salary demands of the German being well within their reach.
The report also claims that the Serie A club are preparing to make changes to their wage structure so as to make an allowance for Arsenal’s Chilean superstar, meaning that a double swoop may well be on the cards.
