2006 Champions League finalists Arsenal are reportedly working on an exit for star player Mesut Ozil who has fallen from grace to grass at the club.
His current status at Arsenal is a far cry from the elevated heights he enjoyed when he became the Gunners’ record signing.
Arsenal splashed £42.5m on the 30-year-old to secure his transfer from Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid in the summer of 2013.
He was one of the first names on the Arsenal team while legendary manager Arsene Wenger was still in charge of the team but that has not been the case under new manager Unai Emery.
Ozil has been dropped for several Arsenal games this season with emphasis more on the team rather than individual players for Spanish tactician Unai Emery.
The Daily Telegraph claim that Arsenal and Unai Emery are keen to offload Mesut Ozil when the transfer window reopens in the summer.
Arsenal want to get his huge salary off the wage bill.
It was revealed that senior Arsenal officials are working with intermediaries to get his salary out of the Arsenal door.
Mesut Ozil earns £350,000 on a weekly basis at Arsenal after he signed a three-year contract at the club in February 2018.
