Mesut Ozil reportedly agrees contract to join Barcelona in January

Barcelona not shutting door on Ozil's incredible contract demands Former Real Star To Become Barca's 4th Highest Earner?

Ozil is nearly certain to quit the Gunners at the end of the season when his existing deal with the club runs out.

Sanchez and Ozil could both leave for nothing next July but team-mate Monreal insists the pair are still committed to the club.

The German global has told Barca he will only sign for them if his wage demands can be met.

"We've seen what they can do now". 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.

The star duo could command significant transfer fees but boss Arsene Wenger has previously stated that he would rather they saw out their contracts to aid the side's cause during the season.

Alexis Sanchez is also likely to leave the club at the end of this season. It does not depend on me.

Now Spanish newspaper AS have "revealed" Ozil's wage demands, which Barcelona can only meet if they shed Arda Turan from their squad.

Arsenal are said to be watching the situation closely with an open mind to making a move if Schalke make it clear they would be willing to sell in January.

Mesut Ozil played a key role in Arsenal's impressive win over Spurs on Saturday, securing the assist for Mustafi's goal and Arsenal's first. "It is other people who are the ones who have to make a decision".

The latest reports however, suggest that the 2014 World Cup victor could be on the move.

Chilean global Sanchez is still very much a target for Pep Guardiola's Manchester City despite their failed £60m deadline day move in August.
