It seems that while the move would look like being a massive step up, Ozil would have to be careful he wasn't actually taking a step backwards - at least in terms of the time he spends on the field.

The January transfer window has not yet opened, but there are plenty of talks around Arsenal star Mesut Ozil, whose contract with the Gunners expiring by the end of the season.

He tweeted: "Barcelona were offered Mesut Ozil last summer but decided against it".

It claims that Ozil's representatives have agreed for the 29-year-old to head to the Nou Camp in the New Year, with Arsenal set to receive 20m euros for the Germany worldwide, who would have been available on a free in the summer. The 29-year-old is understood to be demanding wages in excess of £300,000-per-week.

The likes of Fenerbahce and Manchester United have also been linked with the German playmaker.

National Park Service extends comment period for proposed fee hikes
Under the fee increase vehicle entrance fees during the five-month peak season would increase to $70 from $25 or $30. The NPS argues a fee hike is needed to address the agency's maintenance backlog, valued at $12 billion.

That's because the competition for places at the Camp Nou is far higher than at the Emirates, and Martin Keown thinks Ozil should think long and hard about any return to Spain.

Per the source, Messi believes Ozil would be bad business for Barcelona. Losing Ozil would represent a significant blow for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger.

In addition, there are also concerns over Ozil's physical robustness, with the ex-Wolfsburg man having missed 38 games across four-and-a-half seasons at Arsenal due to various fitness concerns.

"Yet, I do not know the club's intentions".

He played key roles in identifying players such as Robert Lewandowski, Ousmane Dembele and Shinji Kagawa for Dortmund in the past and Arsenal are expecting big things from Mislintat.
