Arsenal star Mesut Ozil looks set to turn down a move to the MLS with DC United reportedly keen on bringing the icon Stateside.
The Daily Star do report that Ozil’s representatives are set to hold talks with DC who are on the hunt for a big-name signing following Wayne Rooney’s agreement to join Derby County.
Ozil has been frustratingly inconsistent in the past couple of seasons, but it is positive news that the 30 year-old is set to hang around for another campaign at the very least.
The future of the former Germany international had come into question recently, with interest from the Chinese Super League also being reported.
The World Cup winner missed Arsenal’s opening day victory over Newcastle due to fears for his safety following an attempted robbery on he and teammate Sead Kolasinac.
However, the playmaker with two years left on his contract at the Emirates Stadium, could return to action when the Gunners take on Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday.
