Ozil tipped to help Arsenal in the transfer market

Arsenal defender Sokratis is supposedly being eyed for a move to Fenerbahce next month, with Mesut Ozil‘s influence tipped to play a part.

The centre-back has fallen out of favour in North London, and surprisingly turned down a move in the summer, before ending up being left out of their quota for both the Premier League and Europa League.

That decision could well have persuaded him to give up on his time at the Emirates, and the chance to play for a top European side could be on the cards.

CaughtOffside are of the belief that Ozil could well talk up such a move in order to help Arsenal rid of one of their senior wages, who is no longer of use to the club.

ESPN reports that the Turkish giants are keen on such a deal, which would likely come for a cut-price fee given his squad importance and his limited time left on his contract.

Ozil on the other hand still sounds like he will be staying put however, although there is talk that he could potentially be loaned out, but so far the most likely scenario is that he will see out his playing deal without actually playing for the final 12 months.

Would Mesut talk up a move for his team-mate in order to help Arsenal? Or would such talk only be because he has the interests of Fenerbahce or Sokratis at heart?

    They should move in the summer June 2021 for free

    Fans, clubs and media should not dictate when a player should move

    Ozil must stay at arsenal, we don’t have any other like him

    Chances are Ozil goes with his instinct and could careless what naysayers think of him. His teammates and those who played against him sing his praise constantly.

    This is well documented and should now be left well alone till he decides what is best for him in true fashion of the modern day footballer. Having followed Arsenal for 50 years I feel weary of the fast changing game, not always for the best. The man is looking after his own interests for himself and his family. You could say that the man does not need for anything for himself and his family, and will not do so for a few generations, but that is the way it is. Arsenal have awarded some really daft contracts in the recent years due to not spending on better, younger players in the obvious key positions, but that is a a decision from a poor self centred board who are businessmen, not genuine football fans. Arteta inherited a poisoned chalice and must be given more time and financial backing. Arsenal’s problems are that nobody wants the deadwood nor do they want to come to a club in the bottom half of the table. Good luck Arteta, you’ll need it.

    Basically Mikel should be forced to play Mesut,l mean l am not being funny but he has been dumped on the sidelines since last march, and we’ve still been paying his wages,whilst recently ( up until the last 3 Games )we
    have been crying out for a player of his talent to feed our
    forward’s.
    But if we’re going to let him leave in January what are we going to get for him,sod all we may be lucky to get some money but it would not surprise at all if he was loaned out or if we are stuck with him until 2021 when his contract run’s out.
