Mesut Ozil’s agent insists midfielder is a ‘loyal’ player and will not leave the North London club in the new year before the expiration of his contract.
The German was omitted from Arsenal’s Premier League and Europa League teams in October and the lists cannot be changed until January 2021.
There has been speculation Ozil could leave in January, with American club’s and Fenerbahce named as landing spots, but the agent of the German, Dr Erkut Sogut says his client is very much focused on Arsenal.
“Even one day is a long time in football, you never know,” he told Tuttomercatoweb . “Of course, there are many clubs interested in signing him.
“This has never changed but his willingness to honour his contract and play hasn’t changed either. He’s a man of his word and is loyal, and loyalty is hard to find in these times. He is not thinking of other clubs except the one with which he is now under contract.
“It’s a shame that Mesut isn’t playing. Of course, everyone focuses on his salary and I understand why. But from a personal perspective, I say it’s a waste considering his talent and creativity.
“He is training harder than ever. At home he has a gym, in the garden and in the garage. So, in addition to the work he does with the club, he also trains at home. This shows his professionalism, all his seriousness.”
