Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil sets sight on move

Mesut Ozil has supposedly set his sights on a move to either Turkey or the MLS for when his Arsenal contract ends next summer.

The German midfielder has fallen out of favour since the Coronavirus pandemic hit, and is yet to feature at all since the break.

Despite his seemingly unimportant role in recent weeks, Ozil is believed to be keen to see out his contract, but is already eyeing his next move, supposedly telling team-mates his next club will be in America or Turkey.

The Sun claims he will enter into talks with potential suitors in January, but would not consider a return to his homeland after his controversial end to his international playing career.

More recently Martin Keown claimed he would not be surprised if Arsenal were to pay the playmaker out of his current deal, with a view to protecting the younger players in the squad, but while his recent exclusion has been blamed on a back problem, manager Mikel Arteta initially claimed that Ozil’s absence was tactical.

Fans remain split on Ozil however, with many aggrieved by the wage that he is still able to pocket, thoughts which will definitely not have changed with him cashing in whilst not being part of the current plans.

There was also the controversy surrounding his decision to initially snub the players decision to accept a pay-cut following the Coronavirus pandemic, which certainly didn’t win fans over.

Will Mikel Arteta include Ozil in his plans for the new season? Is there a chance that he could still leave this summer?

    It’s getting to the point where fans need to turn against him to make him feel unwelcome.

    If he were here for the love of Arsenal, he would see that his role at the club is over and that he’s become a weight around our neck. The Corona pay-cut issues and his reluctance to entertain a move suggests that money is his sole motivation.

        😀😀 trust me you can’t force him out of the club, you either pay-off his contract or he leaves at the end of it. He is so comfortable sitting in his house collecting his pay.

    Best news from Arsenal since our last FA cup win. I will personally fly from Nigeria just to drive him from Colney to Heathrow.

    Yep this speaks and stinks of thise whose used to handle our clubs contracts lots of money to do nothing then be able to over stay your welcome. Outcome toxic and leads to frustation and abuse that doesn’t need to be.
    This is where we need to act like a big club and buy him out of his contract and say thank you but no thank you and let that be the end of it.

      I hadn’t thought of it that way but I think you are absolutely right

      I am with Danny. Instead of acting like a big club we are acting petty by sidelining him. Just buy him out! Or better still tell him we will pay the difference of any income shortfall should he sign elsewhere. Win-win.
