Cape Town - Arsenal are reportedly ready to part ways with Mesut Ozil
and intermediaries are understood to be working to find him a new club.
The German playmaker only penned a new, long-term contract
with the Gunners last January, worth a reported £350,000 per week, but the
relationship between the two parties has seriously deteriorated since then.
The 30-year-old has missed as many games as he has played
this season due to a variety of issues, reportedly ruling himself out of
Saturday's win at Huddersfield due to illness.
When he is available, Ozil has been far from a guaranteed
starter, often being named on the bench by head coach Unai Emery.
With Emery keen to free up room on the wage bill for new
signings in the summer, the Telegraph claim intermediaries have been speaking
to potential suitors.
There is no suggestion the intermediaries are working on
behalf of the club although the Gunners are likely to listen to their
suggestions if they can find anyone capable of matching Ozil's wage demands.
