Arsenal will reportedly re-open talks with Mesut Ozil in a bid to finish his contract early.
The 31-year-old has not been a part of Mikel Arteta’s plans for a while however the Gunners have been unable to maneuver him on to a different membership.
A big a part of the issue is his £350,000-a-week wages along with his contract not ending till June 2021.
The Each day Mail report that Arsenal have tried to achieve a settlement with Ozil for the ultimate 9 months of his deal.
However he’s mentioned to need just about the entire remaining £13million owing to him and is completely happy to see out his contract.
The report says that the Gunners will strive once more to get the World Cup winner off their wage invoice in January.
Ozil was just lately omitted from Arsenal’s Europa League squad as an additional indication that he’s unlikely to play for Arteta.
This week he did provide to fund the wage of the membership’s mascot Gunnersaurus, who was being made redundant.
However talkSPORT pundit, and Arsenal legend, Ray Parlour took a swipe on the playmaker suggesting it was nothing greater than a PR stunt.
“It’s [a PR stunt], yeah,” mentioned Parlour on Friday’s talkSPORT Breakfast. “I want Gunnersaurus was on £300,000-a-week as a result of they’d get their cash’s price.”
A surprised Alan Brazil replied: “What’s Ozil achieved to you, currently?”
Parlour then mentioned: “It’s nothing he’s achieved to me, however I reckon it’s an excellent PR stunt.
“Don’t you assume, Al? Behind the scenes, to get the followers again on his facet, let’s try this.”
However Large Al defended Ozil, saying “I don’t assume so.”
To which Parlour responded: “After all it’s!”
