Madrid midfielder storms off, fuelling fire for Arsenal move
The German, tipped to be sold to help pay for Gareth Bale, looked frustrated after being subbed against Granada on Monday.
He appeared to head straight down the tunnel, shower, and headed for the team bus immediately.
This appeared to fuel his anger after being offered to a number of clubs as one of several players set to be sold.
The Gunners are desperate to make a big name signing this summer, and have identified Ozil as an ideal candidate.
The 24-year-old has 47 caps for Germany, and has been an integral part of the 2011/12 La Liga Champions for many years.
The imminent arrival of the Spurs player will likely move him down the pecking order, and with the World Cup next year, he will seek as much first-team football as possible.
A minor stumbling block could be the 200k a week salary he is demanding – something Arsenal will surely have to negotiate to secure his signing.
A number of Madrid players have been linked with a move out of the Bernabeu this summer, including Iker Casillas.
The Spanish goalkeeper is seeking assurances from boss Carlo Ancelotti about his future, after being benched again.
Diego Lopez is the preferred option to the club captain as of late, purely down to form according to Ancelotti.
“He played the first game and the second”, said the former Chelsea boss. “He’s playing well, that’s all there is to it.”
