Report: Juventus keen on Mesut Ozil, Arsenal want at least £15 million

The German midfielder has shone for Arsenal again, and Juventus have reportedly added him to their shortlist.

Serie A champions are keen to lure Mesut Ozil away from Arsenal this summer, reports Gazzetta World.

Juventus have long been keen on adding a creative number 10 to their midfield, with links to star men across Europe.

Recently they have been linked with Real Madrid star James Rodriguez, who Spanish media outlet AS claim will look to leave the Bernabeu this summer.

A move for the Colombian star would be a complicated one to get over the line though and instead they will focus on other options.

A number of players are likely on that list, and now it appears Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil has been added to it.

The German has firmly established himself among the European elite with his displays this season and is likely to star for his national side at Euro 2016.

The Gunners are naturally loathe to lose one of their star men and would remain hesitant to accept anything less than £15million to minimise the losses on their £42.4million investment, reports Gazzetta World.

Indeed, Arsene Wenger’s side are already negotiating a deal to make him their first £200,000-per-week player, as reported by the Mirror, which may rule out a move to Italy.
