MESUT OZIL is ready to talk terms with Barcelona

 Mesut Ozil is set to stun Arsene Wenger and open talks for a move to Barcelona

Mesut Ozil can open talks with Barca on New Year’s Day as his contract finishes in the summer.

And the German favours a move back to La Liga, where he played for Real Madrid before joining the Gunners.Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are one of the few clubs that can afford the £330,000-a-week wages that come with getting him on a free at the end of the season.

Barca view Ozil as an alternative to Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho after they tried to sign the Brazilian in a £114million deal, with another £20m-a-year in wages.Now they could try to tempt Wenger into a cut-price sale when the transfer window opens again.
