Barcelona chiefs give green light to sign Coutinho

Sport on Mesut Ozil

The player in question is, as you may have guessed, Mesut Ozil, the German midfielder on the books of the English Premier League (EPL) side, Arsenal.

Not as many but still a fair few feel that Arsenal would be better off accepting that Alexis Sanchez no longer wants to play for arsenal and so we should cash in and sell him in the next transfer window rather than losing the Chilean worldwide next summer when his contract runs out.

He has been linked with Manchester United and Barcelona after rejecting Arsenal's contract offers.

The most talked about transfer saga of the summer looks set to continue into January after club executives at Barcelona were reportedly given the green light to sign Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho, Mundo Deportivo report.

Barcelona's fingers have already been burned once in the deal that brought Turan to the club from Atletico Madrid in a move initially agreed in July 2015, prior to his arrival in January. But it appears the 29-year-old could leave in the new year.




Barcelona are weighing up their options, but according to Spanish daily AS, Wenger is ready to accept Ozil leaving in January if it blocks Jose Mourinho from signing him next summer.

Nacho Monreal believes that Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil will remain as Arsenal players until at least the end of the season.

The battle between the PL sides could be an intriguing one but perhaps Klopp may have an upper hand not only because of his German connection but also because Goretzka could play Champions League football with the Reds if he joins in the winter transfer window.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger could be pliable to the situation, too, with Ozil only having eight months left on his deal.

He said: "I know them well and I know when these guys go on the pitch they want to win the game and they have shown that commitment again today". "I am convinced they love the club, they love the team".
