Papers: Ozil to England?

Mesut dreams of Prem move
Germany superstar Mesut Ozil has hinted he may emulate Michael Ballack by playing in the Premier League. The midfielder, 21, will be central to the Germans' plans in their quarter-final clash with Argentina tomorrow. But he could soon be tempted by the Premier League's millions, although Spain's La Liga also appeals. Ozil has just a year left on his contract at Werder Bremen and insists he will not allow anything to take his focus off events in South Africa. "The World Cup is all that matters at the moment. When I get back we can think about my future. To the top players the Premier League is attractive. You look at what Manchester United and Chelsea have achieved and it would be easy to be successful at clubs like that. Trophies are what matters. There are two teams in England always at the top. But the same is true for La Liga."
