Werder Bremen in talks with Ozil

The 20-year-old Germany international is regarded as one of European football’s hottest properties.

“We are in talks,” said Bremen sporting director Klaus Allofs of contract discussions with the player.

“There is no request from Mesut to leave, but if a player scores a goal in a Uefa Cup final then of course the attention of the entire football world will be on him.

“The directors of Juventus have told us that Mesut is a very good player. We said that we will not be selling him.”
