Former Arsenal star Ray Parlour reckons Ozil should be sold in January but cannot see it happening
Ray Parlour believes that Mesut Ozil should be sold by the Gunners in the next transfer window, but admits that is an unlikely possibility.
The German has been linked with a move away from the Emirates since the start of the season after falling out of favour with Unai Emery.
However, he still remains part of the squad and even claims he would not leave until at least the end of his current deal.
Arsenal fans are divided on the matter, one group of fans believe the team is missing Ozil’s creativity. The other group believe that he should be let go and make space for a better player.
Parlour seems to agree that the playmaker should be sold and the money used to get another star player. However, he admits that would probably not happen.
“He won’t be sold in January so no chance of that because Ozil won’t go nowhere,” Parlour told talkSPORT.
“Should he be sold? Yes, he should be. If you’re not going to play him on a regular basis you might as well get rid of him, yeah.”
Ozil returned to the Arsenal starting eleven in their last competitive game against Liverpool and delivered the goods.
Emery substituted him on the 65th minute having been impressed by the 31-year-old and may start him against Wolves today.
Should Ozil perform well against Wolves he may win back more fans. This may buy him more time for himself at the Emirates.
