Man Utd urged to sign Mesut Ozil.
Manchester United have been urged to sign the Arsenal outcast by former Old Trafford legend Paul Scholes.
The Red Devils have struggled for creativity this season having scored just 10 times in nine league games. The missing piece seems to be a creative midfielder to link up play for them.
United have been good at keeping things at bay this season and haven’t conceded much, but they have also offered little at the other end of the pitch. Scholes believes the short term solution to their problem is the 32-year-old Arsenal playmaker.
Ozil is no longer in the picture at the Emirates Stadium with the Gunners looking to move him on, but Scholes believes he could be the difference-maker at Old Trafford.
“Man Utd could do with someone like Ozil who can link a team together,” Scholes said on BT Sport.
“[He is] a player who can link teams together. He has got great quality, he’s shown that in his career.
“He could be an answer short-term, I don’t know. I think that would be up to him, ultimately.
“I can’t [see it happening], but he’s the type of player, short-term, who United could do with.”
Ozil has insisted that he doesn’t see his career elsewhere and wants to stay at the Emirates until the end of his career, but a move up north wouldn’t be a bad idea for the German.
