Piers Morgan: Mesut Ozil ‘seriously considering’ Arsenal exit

Celebrity Arsenal fan and shareholder Piers Morgan has sent supporters in to a spin on social media after claiming that Mesut Ozil is giving serious consideration to leaving the club this summer.

As well as being a vociferous Arsenal fan, Morgan is also a well-known journalist and has worked with the likes of The Sun, News of the World, the Daily Mirror and the Daily Mail during his career.

For those of you on Twitter, I’m sure you’ll have come across Morgan at some point, even if you aren’t one of his near 5 million followers, as he often talks about his beloved Arsenal and today has been no exception.

However, Morgan’s latest post on the social media site is a concerning one as the 51-year-old claims that Mesut Ozil is ‘seriously considering’ offers from Barcelona and Bayern Munich to leave Arsenal this summer.

Morgan is obviously well connected and has plenty of contacts in the industry so he’s certainly worth listening to and his claims come as a time when Ozil has confirmed all contract extension talks with Arsenal have been put on hold until after the European Championships.

Arsene Wenger has always maintained he’s confident Ozil, and Alexis Sanchez, will both sign new deals and let’s hope that’s still the case, but Morgans claim does put some doubt on whether Ozil will commit to the club.

The German international seems happy enough and he’s not given any indication he’s contemplating a move, but it must still be tempting to jump ship if Barca and Bayern have put ‘discreet’ offers forward to his agent.

They are two of the biggest and best teams in the world and he’s guaranteed major trophies if he was to join either club, so I’m sure I’m not the only one a little concerned by all this.

Let’s hope it’s all BS and Ozil signs a new deal over the coming weeks as losing him doesn’t bare thinking about….

    dont talk rubbish Piers Mesut has just said he loves it at Arsenal and feels like he is at home there and how much respect he has for Wenger no chance he will leave also I don’t think The Kos will make a great captain fantastic centre half though this new signing was captain of his club so why not give him a chance never know could turn out to be okay but I would love to see us sign John Stones from Everton have watched him a lot and really believe he could be another Tony Adams fantastic centre half and if Wenger let Chelsea get him he must be mad Arsenal could be league winners next season I really believe that .

    As if anybody connected to Arsenal would talk to a complete prat like Morgan. And shame on you guys for even giving him air time. Morgan is detrimental to Arsenal and should be completely ignored by anyone who has the best interests of Arsenal at heart.

    For me is not scary if Ozil leave Arsenal. I personally am afraid if Sanchez leave Arsenal. This is a player who would hurt me if he left. Ozil is typical player is good but we can without him. Xhaka can do a lot of work.But Wenger is again deep sleep while other teams buy class players. He did not understand that with players like Iwobi, Campbell, Oxlade, Gabriel, Giroud, Ramsey and Wilshere will never become a PL champion and will never take the Champions League. Who should tell him that they are suitable players for Everton, Southampton and West Ham. Xhaka is a good buy, but does not solve anything. Eneny also a good buy but again does not solve anything that Arsenal needs . Arsenal need two defenders as Mascherano and Koulibaly. Arsenal need a tireless motor as Kante against Coquelin, Arsenal need wing as Mahrez against Sanchez, and scorer as Suarez, Lewandowski, Vardi or Lukaku. Wenger should sell 5 players and buy new 5 players. How long will we wait Wenger to do the right thing. In addition players Arsenal also need a new coach, a man of character and ambition. This coach must remove players arsenal of swan game and to teach them to fight hard as Atletico Madrid for example.

    Ozil is going nowhere. Wenger can not motivate his players to win anything big. I really need a top strike in the mould of Lewi, Higuain or ambamayeng. That should be Wenger’s main concern before thinking of strengthening other positions in the team
