Barca to make a move for Arsenal playmaker

La Liga giant Barcelona is reportedly considering making a move for Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil as Brazilian superstar Neymar near his exit from Nou Camp.

There is report claimed that the Copa del Rey Chhasons have identified Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho as a possible replacement for Neymar should the 25-year-old complete a world record transfer move to Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint-Germain.

The Premier League side has indicated that they have no intention selling their best asset, and it has left Barcelona needing to consider other options with just a month remaining of the transfer window.

According to Don Balon, Ozil is on the radar of new boss Ernesto Valverde and the Catalans feel that theywill be able to sign the former Real Madrid star for £53m.

The 28-year-old playmaker Ozil has just a year remaining on his contract at the Emirates Stadium and although he is said to be happy with life in London and he is yet to agree on a new deal with the club.

The World Cup winner came in for criticism during parts of last season, but the play maker still contributed eight goals and nine assists in 33 PremierLeague appearances.
