Three-time European champions Manchester United have emerged as the favourites to sign recently retired German international midfielder Mesut Ozil from rivals Arsenal with the upcoming transfer window just some few weeks away.
This is coming on the back of him being dropped for the Gunners’ last league game against South Coast Club Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
2014 World Cup winner Ozil sat on the Arsenal bench from start to finish as the Gunners returned to winning ways with a 2-1 win over the Cherries.
Bournemouth midfielder Jefferson Lerma put through his own net in the first to give the visitors the lead but Joshua King spared his blushes with the equaliser on the stroke of halftime.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang finished off a flowing Arsenal move in the second half to secure the points for the North Londoners.
Mesut Ozil had started the last four games in the Premier League for Arsenal before he was dropped against Bournemouth.
According to the report from popular English media portal Daily Express, Manchester United are favourites to sign him according to bookmakers Coral.
The Red Devils’ odds have dropped from 3/1 to 2/1 as confirmed by John Hill of Coral, while Spanish champions Barcelona are at 4/1 to sign the former Real Madrid player.
