While the transfer window has closed in England and most other European countries, Spanish clubs have until midnight tonight to recruit new players and the Catalans plan to take advantage of the opportunity. We hope things progress well and that we are able to present another player this month.
You thought the transfer window deadline day madness was over?
Their major target is Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho, 25, but in readiness for failing to seal that deal, the Blaugrana are willing to move onto the next name on their hitlist: Mesut Ozil, according to Cadena Cope.
But their inability to get Thomas Lemar from Monaco saw the Gunners block Sanchez’s exit.
For some very obscure reason, the Spanish transfer window doesn’t close until late tonight so there could still be some insane business still to be done.
The Gunners boss also said the same about Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, however, before Arsenal agreed to sell him to Liverpool on Thursday.
Ozil has less than a year remaining on his current deal with Arsenal and would be available on a free transfer next summer.
