City prepare Gunners raid as Toure nears exit.
Manchester City are lining up a surprise move to sign out-of-form Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil as a potential replacement for Yaya Toure, according to CaughtOffside.
The 25-year-old German has also been linked with a move to Bayern Munich recently as it looks increasingly likely that Arsene Wenger could look to offload him at the next opportunity.
Ozil has not been at his best since joining Arsenal from Real Madrid last summer, but remains a highly regarded talent and a favourite of City boss Manuel Pellegrini.
The Chilean could do with strengthening in midfield as City star Yaya Toure looks likely to force an exit from the club, possibly to join Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain.
