Mesut Ozil Finally Addresses Rumors Linking Him To Bayern Munich And Barcelona
Ozil said that he knew nothing about the move and that he was focusing on the upcoming EUROs.
Ozil said EUROs are his priority at the moment and once the tournament will get over he will sit down and discuss the matter with Arsenal officials.
The German international has also been linked with Barcelona in recent weeks, though Ozil said: “I know nothing about the speculation. I’ll focus first on the national team. After Euro 2016 I’ll hold talks (with Arsenal) because Arsenal are my first port of call. My contract still has two more years to run.”
German team has been given a short break by national teams coach Joachim Low and Ozil was all praise for the manager.
He said: “The week off has been good. It was good that the coach has lessened the load somewhat during the first days. But now I am looking forward to the competition.
“In a (pre-tournament) training camp, it’s not easy to deal with free time. Every player wants the tournament to begin. Euro 2016 is a huge stage, everyone wants to be there.”
With a squad full of trophy winners, the 26 year old said this could help the teams chances in the EUROs.
He added: “This ultimately helps us as a team, because they come with a positive feeling. We have a good mix: young, hungry for success and experienced players. We see that we are one and feel the energy. We’re all feeling positive. We want to win the trophy in Paris.”
