Reports have claimed Barcelona were eyeing up a shock move for Arsenal’s record signing Mesut Ozil, according to the Metro.
Ozil joined Arsenal less than 12 months ago in a £42.5m deal from Real Madrid.
But he hasn’t hit it off at the Emirates and new Barca boss Luis Enrique sensed their might be a chance to lure him back to Spain.
However, the plans were quickly shelved as reports emerged which claimed Liverpool were willing to sell Luis Suarez.
It’s now understood that Barca are poised to open discussions with Liverpool over a potential £80 million deal for the controversial Uruguayan.
