Arsenal are set to try and offload Mesut Ozil in the January transfer window, say reports
Arsenal are set to “actively” try and find a buyer for Mesut Ozil in the January transfer window, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Gunners have now given up hope of the 29-year-old playmaker signing a new contract with the north London club.
Ozil’s future has been a relentless source of speculation in recent weeks after both he and Alexis Sanchez entered into the final 12 months of their contracts at The Emirates.
The Germany playmaker said that he wanted to stay at Arsenal back in the summer but there is yet to be any official announcement on a new deal at The Emirates.
The same report says that Arsenal have offered Ozil a new contract worth £275,000 a week, but that the player is demanding as much as £350,000 a week to sign a new deal at the club.
Arsenal, who are nine points behind leaders Manchester City in the Premier League, return to Europa League action on Thursday night when they take on Red Star Belgrade.
