On December 6th, we covered a report from Tutto Mercato Web, who claimed Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil is open to the idea of making a switch to Italy due to his tense relationship with Unai Emery.

Calciomercato has another update from Italy regarding the Gunners playmaker and their report mentions the 30-year-old is ‘saddened’ after being out of the ex-Sevilla manager’s project at the Emirates.

For this reason, he is now closer and closer to leaving the north London club in January and his entourage offered him to Juventus a few weeks ago.

Unfortunately for the former Real Madrid star, the Old Lady’s sporting director Fabio Paratici has turned down the opportunity, even before talks or negotiations started.

The Turin club have ‘immediately declined’ the proposal, not impressed with the player’s current situation.

Even though rumours in England media claim Juve are interested, Calciomercato are clear that Massimo Allegri is not looking to add Ozil to his squad.
