MILAN

OZIL TIPPED FOR MILAN MOVE

Arsenal football club received a permanent offer for star midfielder, Mesut Ozil, on the last day of the January transfer window from an unknown Qatari based club, but head coach Mikel Arteta stopped the deal from happening.

Reports suggest that the German could have left the gunners for the Middle East if not for the intervention of their manager, though apparently the German star would favour a move to Italy.

MILAN COACH DISPEL FABREGAS LINK

AC Milan head coach Vincenzo Montella has dispelled rumours linking Chelsea out-of-favour star player Cesc Fabregas with a move to the club.


Fabregas was widely speculated as the replacement for injured Milan player Riccardo Montolivo. Montolivo is expected to remain sidelined for the almost the rest of the season after he picked up a knee ligament injury during international duty. Montolivo picked up the injury during the Italy-Spain duel in Turin.
