Arsenal have agreed a deal with Real Madrid to sign German midfielder Mesut Ozil in a move that would shatter their transfer record, Press Association Sport understands.
The 24-year-old is set to discuss terms over the proposed transfer, which is believed to be around 50million euros (£42.2m), and then look to complete a medical ahead of the 11pm transfer deadline.
The Gunners are also reportedly looking to bring in a couple more players before the summer transfer window closes.
