Arsenal are supposedly in talks with Inter Milan and Dalian Yifang over the possibility of signing stars Ivan Perisic and Yannick Carrasco, but what would either signing mean for current Gunner Ozil?
Interestingly, The German was made captain for yesterday’s 2-0 win over Cardiff City, which one would assume would spell assurances to the creative star following a spell on the sidelines.
Ozil has been a strong talking point with fans and pundits alike over the years, with many coming to criticise his lack of work rate and ability to track back and defend, and he has even been linked with the exit door multiple times.
Arsenal are now supposedly in the market for a big name to come in this month, with Carrasco and Perisic both believed to be keen on such a move, although both deals are claimed to be only temporary until the summer, when they will have an option to buy.
The Gunners have claimed not to have the money to make any major signings this month, which is backed up by the proposed deals on the table.
The latest claim is that Inter Milan were playing hardball over the deal, which led us into talks with Carrasco’s side, and we now appear closer to signing the latter.
A possible problem could be the fact that his current club insist that a replacement will need to be found before they allow their Belgian star to depart the club after only 12 months, and while our club must rush through any signings due to the transfer window closing tomorrow night, the Chinese outfit have much longer to bring in recruits.
Could Perisic or Carrasco be eyed as the replacement for Ozil? Would Ozil fit in the same team as Carrasco in the Arsenal side?
