Is Mesut Ozil urging Germany teammates Mario Gotze and Julian Draxler to join him at Arsenal?


Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has urged his Germany teammates to consider a move to the English Premier League.

As it was the case last year, the Gunners have been linked with Mario Gotze and Julian Draxler this month as manager Arsene Wenger continues to strengthen his squad.

Gotze, 24, is expected to leave Bayern Munich this summer and Draxler, 22, has already received an offer to join Manchester United according to recent reports.

"Definitively. It was always my goal to prove myself at the big clubs abroad. And I only have positive things to say about Premier League if somebody wants to move abroad," Ozil told Sports Bild.

"The league is very interesting, very balanced: The best example being Leicester winning the title. It's just a lot of fun to play football in England. Indeed, it's extremely exhausting, but you can relish it.

"If a national team player asks me what it's like in England, I reply: 'If you have the opportunity, do it!' If I were to make the decision to go abroad again, I would definitely do it just like I did it."
