Euro giants could scupper Arsenal plans as stunning playmaker enters pivotal period

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil is emerging as a shock target for Bayern Munch this summer after his contract talks stalled, according to the Sun.

The German World Cup winner has put the frustrating first part of his Gunners career behind him and established himself as one of the most creative attackers in the Premier League.

A stunning 18 assists this season has seen the 27-year old linked with a move to Barcelona, though the Bavarian giants are now thought to be interested.

The former Real Madrid star has two years to run on his deal, with uncertainty over whether or not he will sign a new one.

With that in mind, the next few months could prove pivotal in his Arsenal career.

He will delay contract talks until after the European championships, with the incoming Carlo Ancelotti reportedly keen on bringing him to the Allianz Arena in order to kick off the post Pep Guardiola era.
