Arsenal in the clear for Ozil as Manchester United deny approach

Manchester United will not be in for Mesut Ozil, leaving Arsenal in the clear.

The twists and turns of transfer deadline day...

One minute Sky Sports News claim they are told by Mesut Ozil's agent Manchester United have made an approach.

20 minutes later Manchester United have denied making an enquiry, stating they did once hold an interest in the German international but do not at present.

The news is confirmed by Guardian journalist Daniel Taylor who is adamant United are not interested in Ozil.

It leaves Arsenal relatively in the clear, with only peripheral interest from PSG.

How convincing can Arsenal be? They will offer him first team football, whereas at Real Madrid that is certainly not guaranteed thanks to new signings Isco and Gareth Bale.

If Arsenal can smash their transfer record and pull it off, it could just be Arsene Wenger's greatest achievement in recent years.

Can Arsenal do it? What do you think?
