Inter Milan have reportedly turned down the chance to sign Mesut Ozil.
Contrary to recent reports, Inter have turned down the chance to sign Ozil, claim Italian outlet Calciomercato (via Sky Sports).
The playmaker has apparently been offered to several Italian clubs but none of them want to sign him.
Not only does this sound a little far-fetched considering it’s Mesut Ozil and I find it hard to get my head around ‘several’ Italian clubs snubbing him, but it’s not even been one week since it was reported that Inter are actually very keen on signing him.
The Serie A giants are said to be unhappy with Joao Mario’s recent performances and apparently want the German to replace him. Some outlets even claimed that Inter wanted to organise a swap deal.
If Inter want to sign Ozil so badly, why would they turn down a move for him? It makes no sense.
The midfielder has under a year left on his current deal with Arsenal and while many believed he would sign a new contract with the club, the more time passes by, the less likely it’s looking.
Although Ozil can’t speak with any Premier League teams before his contract runs out next summer, he can make contact with clubs outside of England.
