Yep, looks like that deal is very, very close.
So it looks as though a couple of signings are almost done for Arsenal. Reports in France now suggesting they have enquired to Chelsea about signing Demba Ba.
Man Utd news... reports in Manchester suggest that United are plotting a late move for Porto striker Jackson Martinez. Fancy that Man Utd fans?
I'm sure the German's are just as efficient at getting medicals done and dusted. Ozil has national team games to prepare for. Hope this one gets over the line soon! A brilliant addition to the Premier League.
Mesut Ozil undergoing a medical ahead of a £42.5 million. Emiliano Viviano just waiting to be announced. Arsenal still in for Angel Di Maria and Demba Ba. Plus possibly a couple of others we don't know about in case the first choice targets don't come off.
Totally agree @doublejumpstart. Ozil is a terrific transfer, but would suddenly look short if Giroud got injured.
All the major news sources have confirmed that a deal has been agreed and that he will shortly undergo a medical in Germany.
Little bit more Liverpool news, well kind of.... new signing Tiago Ilori, who I told you earlier was born in London, could be asked by the FA to play for England! The 20-year-old defender is yet to make his Portugal first team debut.
Has been linked with Gourcuff for years, Ozil is on a different level though.
Arsenal still on the market for a striker, Demba Ba emerging as the most likely candidate. Wenger has always praised him, especially when he was in top form for Newcastle.
Wenger rates Szczesny very highly. Wouldn't want to halt his progress and he is starting to show that he can be a quality keeper.
