Arsenal never made Sterling bid: Wenger also praises Van Gaal.
According to Tuttosport, new Juve midfield ace Sami Khedira has been urging his international teammate to join him in Turin after making the move himself from Real Madrid this summer in a free transfer, as reported by Football Italia.
However, it doesn’t appear as though Wenger will be allowing any such switch to happen which would see the pair enjoy a reunion with the Serie A champions.
“Ozil is our player, he will remain our player and he wants to remain our player,” Wenger said.
“It is a big season for him because he had a difficult start last year and in the second part of the season he was very important.”
The Gunners boss went on to add he believes that the German international is improving in various aspects of his game and is continuing to adjust and adapt to the Premier League style.
With Juve losing Andrea Pirlo this summer after the midfield maestro opted to join New York FC, the Turin giants may well be looking to bolster their squad to continue to dominate domestically and make another big impact in Europe.
