Arsene Wenger does not believe Mesut Ozil has agreed to sign for Barcelona in January.
The German is out of contract in the summer, but the Gunners are reportedly keen to tie him down to a new deal, although his representatives and the Gunners are still far from reaching an agreement.
Ozil who was the club’s record signing before this last summer’s signing of Alexandre Lacazette has been inconsistent in his four years at the Emirates. But, he put in a man of the match performance against Tottenham last weekend and has attracted the attention of Barcelona.
However, when asked if Ozil has agreed to join Barcelona in January, Wenger said “No” per Talksport, the French went on to admit that players could talk to any club at any time as they have representatives who hold talks on their behalf.
The French man defiantly refused to sell Ozil or Sanchez during the last transfer window despite knowing they could walk for free after this season.
Ozil had earlier reportedly told family and friends that Jose Mourinho wanted him at Manchester United and he would prefer to run down his current deal and join the Red Devils.
