Werder Bremen's Ozil keen on Premiership move

Werder Bremen ace Mesut Ozil is keen to make the move to the English Premier League according to reports. The 21-year old Germany international is attracting plenty of interest from the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City due to impressive World Cup performances and says he would be open to a Premiership move although he is currently focused on Saturday's quarter-final clash with Argentina.

"The World Cup is all that matters at the moment," Ozil said.

"When I get back we can think about my future, but for for now it's not something I want to give a lot of thought to. To the top players the Premier League is attractive.

"You look at what Manchester United and Chelsea have achieved over the last five years and you see it would be easy to be successful at two clubs like that."

Ozil added that he would love to emulate the achievements of Germany star Michael Ballack with Chelsea but also hinted that a move to Spain's La Liga could be an option.

"I see what Michael Ballack achieved at Chelsea and the quality of players he played with and the temptation becomes obvious," he added.

"Trophies are what matters to me. There are two teams in England always at the top and of course that's attractive. But the same is true for La Liga.

"They're the strongest leagues in the world."
