The 26-year-old German playmaker joined Arsenal from Real Madrid in a £42.5 million deal two years ago but has continuously come under criticism for his performances.
Ozil has four goals and five assists in 15 Premier League appearances this season and helped the Gunners past Reading in their FA Cup semi-final on Saturday with two assists, pushing Arsenal to their second successive final in the competition.Embed from Getty Images
But Fichajes claim that Ozil could link up with former coach Jose Mourinho at Chelsea this summer in what would be a shock transfer.
The German was signed by Mourinho at Real Madrid and only left the Spanish giants after the Portuguese head coach moved back to the Premier League with Chelsea.
The Arsenal star has a lot of respect for Mourinho, while the Chelsea boss has always heaped praise on the German. He previously explained that: “Ozil is unique. There is no copy of him – not even a bad copy.”Embed from Getty Images
A summer switch from Arsenal to Chelsea is unlikely as the Gunners would not want to see any of their best players move to their London rivals.
But the Blues may be looking to Ozil if the likes of Oscar move on this summer as a central playmaker will be needed to reinforce the league leaders’ attack.
Would Mesut Ozil leave Arsenal for Chelsea? Should the Blues make a move for the German playmaker?
