I am not surprised to hear that Jose Mourinho has his beady eyes on another one of the Arsenal players. He has done well enough with Ashley Cole in his first spell at Chelsea and now our former captain Cesc Fabregas looks like inspiring them to another Premier League trophy.
And Mourinho knows all about our club record signing Mesut Ozil from being in charge of the German at Real Madrid, so the report by the Daily Star claiming that the Chelsea boss wants to sign Ozil this summer should come as no surprise.
To give Mourinho his due, his key signings of last summer have made the difference this season, but they are still a pretty turgid team to watch most of the time. In my opinion Ozil would give them that extra flair, fluency and attacking talent and his transfer would make them big favourites for next season.
That is one big reason for Arsene Wenger to put his foot down and refuse to sell but there are many more things stopping Mourinho getting his man. Wenger would not sell his nemesis one of our players if he could possibly avoid it and he can with Ozil.
Not only is the German on a long term contract with Arsenal, he is now playing his best football since joining us and is clearly enjoying life. We are the perfect team for him and we are building a team capable of great glory. So good luck Jose, but you will be wasting your time chasing this particular transfer.
