Could Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil be on his way out this summer? Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil could be angling for a move back to his homeland Germany or playing in Turkey. Mesut Ozil played in German back in 2006 for FC Schalke and Werder Bremen before moving to Real Madrid in 2010.
The four-time German player of the year has been instrumental for Arsenal since his move from Real Madrid in the summer of 2013 for a £42.5 million fee a club – record and transfer record for a German player.
It is therefore of no surprise that the German is keen to move back home where he can be closer to his family. The German star has been nothing short of sensational this season with 6 goals and 18 assist registed thus far. He sits well on top of the Barclays Premier League top assists. Arsenal will surely miss his presence should he depart.
However, reports suggest Arsene Wenger aims to replace Mesut Ozil with Borussia Dortmunds Henrikh Mkhitaryan should the German head back home. However, Arsenal will have to battle Chelsea for the midfielders signature. Following Ozils consistent performances Arsenal could sell him for a hefty fee.
With only 2 years remaining on his current deal; now would be a good time to cash in on arguably their best player. However, it is believed that Arsene Wenger is looking to link up the two stars in midfield.
It has been suggested that Arsenal are reportedly opening contract talks to tie down their main men with Alexis Sanchez included. However, the German is in no rush to sign a new deal. Ozil has won two FA Cups with Arsenal yet remains disappointed with Arsenal dropping points against weaker opposition.
The German stated in an interview that Arsenal could have won the title and that finishing 3rd would be the minimum goal achieved. Could Ozil be frustrated by a lack of silverware and consistency in the title race ?
