Mesut Ozil would fit in best at Italian club Inter Milan if he was to leave Arsenal in this January transfer window, ESPN reporter Dan Graca reveals.
Ozil has been struggling for game time under Unai Emery and has been linked with a move to Italy with Inter and AC Milan are both interested in the playmaker recently.

The 30-year-old is Arsenal’s highest earner with £350,000-a-week wages and has now failed to prove it.
However, Graca has revealed that the former Real Madrid ace would be a better fit at San Siro for the Inter.
Graca told the Calcioland podcast: “I haven’t watched much of Ozil, I’m much more intrigued by all the debate on him that I see on Twitter, but actually watching him play, I’ve got to be honest over the last year or two, I haven’t seen a tonne.”
“Now, he has been linked to Serie A clubs, especially when he had the expiring contract with Arsenal.”
“Inter definitely considered him, the problem was he wanted huge wages and that would have had a big domino effect on whatever offer they would have had to pay [Mauro] Icardi.”
“If they had paid Ozil a ton of money they would have had to at least match that with Icardi, so they were out.”
“But if I look on the pitch, and from what I know of Ozil I can kind of see him sitting there pretty well, also Milan.”
“There are a lot of people who think Juve should have more creativity so maybe there, but I’m going to say Inter if I had to say.”

Ozil joined the Gunners in the summer of 2013 from Real Madrid and went on to score 41 goals in 212 appearances for the North London side.
