Arsenal and Manchester United are on alert after it emerged that Mesut Ozil has asked Werder Bremen to lower their asking price for him.

The Daily Star says the German World Cup star told his club to lower the £16m asking price.

The Premier League big guns are willing to spend no more than £10m to bag Ozil.

Both United and Arsenal would prefer to take their chances next summer when they could sign him on a free transfer as his contract at the Bundesliga club expires.

Chelsea have also been linked with a move for the attacking midfielder but the player’s representatives have denied there are any talks planned with the Blues during their pre-season tour of Germany.

Ozil has made it clear that he will not sign a new deal at Werder.
