There is more than just a small minority of Arsenal fans who think that the Germany international Mesut Ozil is nothing more than a luxury that the Gunners cannot really afford to have, apart from when he blows away the doubters with a match winning performance like we saw against Tottenham last weekend.
Not as many but still a fair few feel that Arsenal would be better off accepting that Alexis Sanchez no longer wants to play for arsenal and so we should cash in and sell him in the next transfer window rather than losing the Chilean international next summer when his contract runs out.
I think the same thing at times, but last weekend made me think that all these Arsenal transfer rumours might actually be working in our favour. We have rumours reported by The Mirror reporting that FC Barcelona are thinking about Ozil instead of Coutinho and that could be perfect. It is hard to admit but the Catalan club are a much more appealing outfit than us and I reckon Ozil would snap their hands off. But he needs to be in top form to firm up their interest and how does he prove his worth?
The exact same thing could be said of Sanchez, as Man City are doing pretty well without him. I am sure the striker has noticed and if he is determined to play for Guardiola again he needs to be showing special skills. Again, good for Arsenal for now at least.
Bring on the rumours I say!
