Inter president Erik Thohir has confirmed that the Serie A side are interested in Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil.
The Germany international has seen his future called into question for some time now, with no extension agreed to a contract set to expire in 2018.
The January window will, however, present a final opportunity for the Gunners to generate a fee for their want-away stars, and it could be that Ozil is the subject of an offer from Italy.
Thohir has admitted to being keen on the 28-year-old World Cup winner, but is also wary of winter deals after being stung in the past.
“He [Ozil] is definitely one of those players we are looking at, but the last January signings of [Lukas] Podolski and [Xherdan] Shaqiri proves winter signings can fail to live up to expectations,” Thohir told Metrotv.news.com.
