Arsenal are now actively looking for a buyer for Mesut Ozil after accepting that the midfielder will not sign a new contract.
Mesut Ozil will be free to leave the Emirates at the end of the season as that is when his current deal is due to expire.
According to The Mirror, the Gunners are looking for a club to take on Ozil, whose camp have been demanding £350,000-a-week wages from the North London club.
The report claims that club officials are growing frustrated with the player’s attitude and performances, which have come under scrutiny many times during his four-year career at Arsenal.
Arsene Wenger refused to criticise Ozil for his part in Watford’s winner against the Gunners on Sunday when his lame attempt to shield the ball eventually to Tom Cleverley’s stoppage time winner.
But behind-the-scenes, there was fury at the midfielder’s poor defensive work in the lead up to Watford’s goal.
It isn’t the first time Ozil’s desire has been questioned. Sources claim his effort in training has dropped significantly in recent months; the dip even been noticed by players.
