Mesut Ozil may have inherited Jack Wilshere’s no 10 jerseys yet his role under Unai Emery next season at Arsenal is uncertain.

Ozil underwhelmed at the World Cup as defending champions Germany they crashed out from the group phase.

The ex-Real Madrid playmaker wasn’t quite at his best last season following Alexis Sanchez’s switch to Manchester United.

Ahead of the coming campaign, Emery has spotted the young attacker to orchestrate things for the Gunners.

He is 21-year-old Paris Saint-Germain star, Goncalo Guedes.

Guedes spent last season on loan at Valencia where he produced incredible displays – racking up an impressive five goal and nine assists.

The former Benfica man was of similar form for Portugal in Russia.

With another uncertain season ahead in France, Guedes is hoping for a permanent switch elsewhere and Emery is ready to bring him to London.

Spanish media outlet Cadena Cope, as quoted by the Daily Star, claims Arsenal are monitoring his situation.

The Gunners aren’t alone though as AC Milan and Inter Milan are doing likewise.

A bid of around £35m should be enough to turn the heads of PSG.

Should the deal go through, Guedes will become Emery’s fourth signing – joining Stephan Lichtsteiner, Bernd Leno and  Sokratis Papastathopoulos.
