Arsenal News: Ozil declares Flamini 'my brother'; Bid for Ipswich wonderkid Tristan Nydam planned

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has declared former teammate Mathieu Flamini a "big brother".

Ozil admits he's stayed in touch with Flamini since he left the Gunners last year.

He told SFR Sport: "We have a very good relationship with him and me. I consider him my brother. We are still in contact. We had a lot of fun playing together.

"He, like (Karim) Benzema, are two great players who are a treasure for France. I am delighted to have met them."

Meanwhile, Ipswich Town wonderkid Tristan Nydam is attracting interest from Arsenal.

The Sun reports Nydam has been a long-term target for the Gunners.

He has less than two years left on his current contract at Portman Road. Born in Zimbabwe, he has featured at Under-19 level for England.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger believes they can land Nydam for €2m.
