Reported Manchester United target Mesut Ozil impressed in his side’s 2-1 win against Chelsea in their EFL Cup semi-final tie against Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night, and Red Devils fans have urged their club to sign the playmaker now.
The Independent reported on Wednesday that Jose Mourinho is still keen to bring the 29-year-old to Old Trafford despite already signing Alexis Sanchez from the Gunners this month, with the Germany international’s contract with the north London outfit due to expire this summer.
Ozil has shown some improved form in recent weeks following a slow start to the campaign, and he has scored four goals and provided a further six assists in 20 appearances in all competitions for Arsene Wenger’s men this term.
Man United supporters were quick to have their say on his latest display via social media, and while one said “announce Ozil now before he signs a new contract”, another said “our number 10 jersey must be Ozil’s”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

It would probably finish Arsenal fans off but I’d have Ozil now . Take advantage of his current contract situation, premiership proven and get another top midfield signing in the Summer.
