ARSENAL boss Unai Emery is desperate for Mesut Ozil to leave the club this month so the transfer of Denis Suarez of Barcelona can be completed.
The Gunners manager left Ozil out of his entire squad for the 1-0 defeat to West Ham on Saturday.
That raised eyebrows among fans and pundit with Arsenal lacking creativity going forward.
But the Daily Mail claim Emery has no trust whatsoever in Ozil and wants him shipped out this month to fund a permanent move for Suarez.
Arsenal want to loan Suarez from Barcelona but the Catalan club want to seal a permanent exit for the 25-year-old.
Ozil’s £350,000-a-week contract could be a big stumbling block in trying to sell the German.
Emery claimed the midfielder was underserving of a place in the Arsenal squad to take on West Ham at the weekend.
The Spaniard said: “The players who were here were the ones who deserved to be at this match.
“Sometimes he is helping us, at other moments not helping us because of injury or because maybe the match is not for him.”
Sokratis Papastathopoulos hinted Arsenal could do with a player like Ozil in their side as they struggled in the final third against West Ham.
