Mesut Ozil could follow Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United in the summer transfer window, according to Alan Shearer.

Ozil’s future has been a source of intense speculation in recent months after he entered into the final few months of his contract at The Emirates.

The 29-year-old’s current deal is due to expire at the end of the season and it remains to be seen whether Ozil will commit to a new deal at The Emirates.

Arsenal will face the very real prospect of losing Ozil on a free transfer in the summer if they fail to tie him down to a new deal.

And former Newcastle United and England star Shearer believes that he could be another target for Manchester United, in comments that are sure to worry Arsenal fans.

Writing in his column for The Sun, Shearer said: “Sanchez understandably was not prepared to hang around at Arsenal any more, where the ambition is lacking with a manager and a club that have lost their way.

“It is not just Sanchez who thinks it. Mesut Ozil had a great game on Saturday but he will be a free agent in the summer too… United might even open the door for him.”

Arsenal are currently preparing for the second leg of their League Cup semi-final clash against Chelsea at The Emirates on Wednesday night.

The two London sides drew 0-0 when they met in the first leg earlier this month.

The Gunners returned to winning ways in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon with a thumping 4-1 win over Crystal Palace at The Emirates.
