Despite the reported poor form of Arsenal players, they have been attracting interest from other clubs.
Mesut Ozil is reportedly attracting interest from the Chinese Super League as his contract negotiations in north London drag on.
Ozil has been heavily criticised for his performances in recent weeks, with the Gunners’ only realistic shot at silverware being the FA Cup following underwhelming campaigns in Europe and the Premier League.
The Sun suggest a number of Chinese clubs are prepared to double Ozil’s wages to £300,000-a-week before regulations on overseas players are introduced.
It’s understood the German playmaker is waiting until Arsene Wenger pens a new deal at the Emirates but the manager’s future still hangs in the balance as the season nears its end.
Ozil’s agent recently stressed that the 28-year-old is committed to Arsenal despite a wave of criticism following the 5-1 defeat to Bayern Munich.
On Wednesday, it was reported that the agent of Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney had jetted into China to discuss a potential transfer away from Old Trafford.
United CEO Ed Woodward is believed to have informed Rooney’s agent, Paul Stretford, that the forward can move immediately if he wishes to.
