Barcelona will push for Mesut Ozil if they fail to bag main target Philippe Coutinho in January, according to reports

BARCELONA will turn to Mesut Ozil if they fail to land Philippe Coutinho in January.

Coutinho, 25, was keen to move to Spain last summer after the Catalan giants sold Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain for a world record fee of £200million.

Liverpool blocked the move last summer, but Barca are set for another tilt at the Brazilian international next month, according to Mundo Deportivo.

However if the Merseysiders refuse to do business again in January, then Barca will turn their attention to Mesut Ozil.

The Arsenal playmaker is out of contract at the end of the season and can sign a pre-contract with an overseas club next month.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has made a last ditch effort to keep the German international at the Emirates, with deal to make Ozil the highest earner in the club’s history.

If Barca boss Ernesto Valverde gets Ozil in January, that could all but scupper any chance Coutinho will fulfill his dream of making the move to the Nou Camp next summer.

Meanwhile, Barca will decide between Coutinho, Ozil and Gremio star Arthur Melo next month, according to Spanish media outlet Sport.

The Brazilian side have reported the Spanish club to Fifa after their man was pictured in a Barca shirt during a meeting with his agent and representatives from the Catalan club recently.

The 21-year-old has a £45million release clause and the new Copa Libertadores champions insist the fee in not up for negotiation.
