Mesut Ozil is now being tipped for a move to Barcelona. 

The 29 year-old who is out of contract with Arsenal at the end of the season has so far refused to sign a new deal.

That being said, it appears the Gunners are willing to cash in on the midfielder in January in a bid to recoup some of the £42.5m they paid Real Madrid for Ozil back in 2013.

The Metro are reporting that the German has agreed a contract to join the La Liga giants. That’s despite regulations stating players are only free to begin pre-contract negotiations within six months of their current deals expiration.

Barcelona have also been informed that Arsenal would accept a bid of €20 million (£17.7m) for the Germany international.

It’s news that appears to have gone down well among Arsenal fans, who feared he would join Manchester United next summer.

Take a look at what they’ve had to say on Twitter…
