thumbnail Hello,

World Cup star open to a move to the Premier League...

Werder Bremen playmaker Mesut Oezil has revealed that although he is happy in Germany he would love the opportunity to join either Chelsea or Manchester United.

The 21-year-old has been linked with a host of top European clubs after starring for Germany in this summer's World Cup and with just one year left remaining on his contract, Werder Bremen have accepted that they would be willing to sell the midfielder.

However, despite interest from several of Europe's top clubs Oezil  has not ruled out staying with Werder Bremen for another season and accepts that the club will decide his future.

"I am under contract with Werder [Bremen] for another year and it is impossible for me to say if a deal will be done this summer," he told the Daily Star Sunday.

"They may decide that they want to keep me for another season or they may decide to sell me this summer so they can get some money for me. That is up to the club."

Reports have suggested that Oezil would demand a fee of around £12 million, a relatively small amount for one of football's biggest rising stars.

Oezil has been repeatedly linked with the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester United and Chelsea and he admitted that he could be tempted by a move to England.

"There are four or five clubs in Europe that you would have to say as a player would be a dream to play for," he added.

"Manchester United and Chelsea are very much two of them.

"When you are looking at moving clubs it's impossible not to pay attention to the Premier League and even more impossible not to pay attention to Manchester United and Chelsea.

"I am a winner and, when I am looking for a new club, I simply look at where I can be the most successful and where I can win the most trophies.

"If you look at the recent history of Manchester United and Chelsea then it's clear that a player can be very successful there.

"Of course clubs like Real Madrid and Barcelona are of huge interest and the Premier League's top two clubs are of serious interest to me when the time comes."
