Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has dismissed reports linking Mesut Özil with a move to the Serie A champions Juventus.
The Italian newspaper Tuttomercato recently claimed that Juventus would use the money if Pogba was sold to sigh the Germany international.
However, the Gunners boss shot down any talks of Ozil leaving to Turin. “During this period, the newspapers are creative and have to be creative, but many times the stories are created by agents,” Wenger was quoted as saying by Goal.
“Ozil is our player, he will remain our player and wants to remain our player.”
Özil joined Arsenal two summers ago from Real Madrid and has been in top form in recent months following a lengthy spell on the sidelines due to an injury.
The World Cup winner has won two Vitality Arsenal Player of the Month and a PFA Fans Player of the Month award since the turn of the year.
Özil provided nine assists and five goals in 32 appearances for Arsenal in all competitions last season.
