Mesut Ozil poised for Arsenal move

Mesut Ozil is set to become the most expensive German footballer of all time after agreeing to join Arsenal from Real Madrid for a reported £42.5 million.

• Live Transfer deadline day

Ozil, 25, currently on duty with Joachim Low’s Germany squad, is set to undergo a medical in Munich with Bayern doctor Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt before signing a contract, Bild has reported. He has agreed personal terms, the paper said.

It claimed Ozil has verbally agreed to a five-year deal. He has yet to sign the contract, but Bild reported that the move would be made official at 4.30pm BST. When that time passed, another German paper, Die Welt, reported that an official Arsenal statement would follow later on Tuesday evening.

During Gareth Bale's introduction as a Real Madrid player earlier on Tuesday, thousands of Madrid supporters were heard chanting: "Ozil no se vende" (Don't sell Ozil).

Ozil is set to earn £6 million a year at Arsenal, where he will be reunited with former Werder Bremen team-mate Per Mertesacker and fellow Germany international Lukas Podolski.

The deal will make him the most expensive player ever sold by Real Madrid, with the current record held by Robinho's £32.5 million move to Manchester City in 2008.

The current transfer record for a German player is held by Bayern Munich’s Mario Gotze, who made a €37 million switch from Borussia Dortmund earlier in the summer.

Ozil's move comes at the end of a transfer window which has seen Arsenal frustrated by their failure to land Gonzalo Higuain, who left Real for Napoli, or Luis Suarez, who now appears likely to remain with Liverpool.

Ozil did not feature in the Real side that beat Bilbao 3-1 at the weekend, but coach Carlo Ancelotti rejected claims that his omission had been transfer-related.

"It is normal that he [Ozil] is unhappy," Ancelotti said. "I do not like players to be happy on the bench. It was a technical decision to put in [Angel] Di Maria, who has a lot of rhythm and intensity -- nothing more."

Last week, Ozil had claimed he had no plans to leave Real, saying: "I feel really good at Madrid. I have a contract here until 2016.

"I feel very good here and get on really well with my team-mates. I want success here. There has been a lot written in the media, talk of some other options, but I have a contract and I am staying with Real Madrid."
