Latest transfer news : Arsenal want to sell Mesut Ozil
Arsenal want to sell Mesut Ozil next month – but may be resigned to punting him around on loan in a desperate bid to offload him.
Ozil has found himself out in the cold after Gunners boss Unai Emery lost confidence in his capacity to play to his framework.
The World Cup winner has become a peripheral figure at the Emirates over the past six weeks and has not started a Premier League match since November 11.
In that time the 30-year-old has struggled with a back issue, but Emery has twice axed him for tactical reasons – first for the trek to Bournemouth and afterward the North London Carabao Cup derby against Tottenham.
It is clear the Arsenal manager does not trust Ozil to perform in his high power and high work-rate style of play.
There have been suggestions the pair have clashed in team meetings when the manager has transparently scrutinized his hard working attitude.
the Gunners would be looking for at least £30million before the agreed to sell, and the purchasing club would then need to concoct a bundle which would be adequate for the player to acknowledge.
What’s more, given Ozil just marked another £350,000 seven days contract at the Emirates this year, that kind of deal will be out of reach for the majority of sides in world football.
Ozil has officially dismissed the recommendation of a move to Inter Milan and won’t be constrained out anyplace just to keep the Gunners glad.
