It claims that Ozil's representatives have agreed for the 29-year-old to head to the Nou Camp in the New Year, with Arsenal set to receive 20m euros for the Germany worldwide, who would have been available on a free in the summer.
With Arsenal's hierarchy desperately trying to secure the pair's long term futures, they still could both conceivably leave for nothing come July.
The German worldwide has told Barca he will only sign for them if his wage demands can be met. The Catalan officials clearly haven't forgotten about Ozil's time with their league rivals Real Madrid and they'll hope he can replicate the same form for Barcelona as he did with Los Blancos.
"They are committed to the group and we will see what happens".
The star duo could command significant transfer fees but boss Arsene Wenger has previously stated that he would rather they saw out their contracts to aid the side's cause during the season. It does not depend on me.
Sanchez is reportedly hell bent on joining Manchester City, while Ozil has been linked with a surprise move to Barcelona.
So they are considering selling him in the January transfer window if he makes it clear he will not commit his future to the club beyond this season.
Moving to Spain would certainly be beneficial for the World Cup victor, as he looks to make the most out of whatever is left of his prime years.
That move was rumoured to be worth around £60 million, but with Sanchez's contract ticking towards next summers expiry date, his value is plummeting by the day.
