Mesut Ozil has been one of the outstanding Premier League players of the season

Arsenal might have to fend off interest from Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, as the giants are considering a move for Mesut Ozil, according to a report.

The Mirror cite the Sunday Express, who claim that the playmaker is being considered by the European giants.

The Times newspaper previously reported that Ozil is currently in negotiations with the Gunners, with the German demanding a contract of £250,000-a-week, £110,000 more than his current deal.

It is now said that his former club Madrid and Bundesliga giants Bayern are willing to offer a deal much closer to his demands, if talks with the north London club break down.

The 27-year-old is currently on international duty with Germany, where he provided an assist for Thomas Muller who opened the scoring in his side’s 3-0 victory over the Czech Republic in a World Cup qualifier on Saturday.

As a result the talented midfielder has now become his national side’s most dangerous player, providing 35 assists since his debut in 2009, more than any other player.

Ozil has scored two goals in eight Premier League and Champions League games this term, but is yet to provide an assist for his club.
