Ozil in Arsenal talks - report
Arsenal are in 'advanced talks' with Real Madrid to sign in-demand midfielder Mesut Ozil, according to reports.
The 24-year-old German has been at the Bernabeu since 2010 having moved from Werder Bremen.
And Ozil could be heading to the Emirates Stadium after Gareth Bale left Tottenham for the Spanish capital for a reported world record fee of £85.3m.
Ozil has played more than 100 games for Real who beat off competition from Arsenal and Manchester United to sign their man following the World Cup in South Africa.
But now the Gunners are close to securing the player they wanted three years ago in a deal reportedly worth £42.5million.
Manchester United and Paris Saint Germain have also been strongly linked with Ozil in recent days.
