Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright is adamant that the sale of star player Mesut Ozil this summer will be a bad move from the club.
The Arsenal legend talked about Mesut Ozil and transfers during his recent interview as monitored by Goal.
Recent reports had claimed that Arsenal manager Unai Emery is looking to move several first team players on during this summer’s transfer window.
The Arsenal boss wants to sell Mesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan but he’s aware that finding a new club for both players would be difficult mainly because of their outrageous wages.
German World Cup winner Ozil has two years left on his contract at Arsenal and the Gunners will struggle to find a buyer for him due to his £350,000 per week salary.
The former Real Madrid and Werder Bremen player reiterated his desire to stay at Arsenal for the remainder of his contract in his last interview.
On his part, Henrikh Mkhitaryan earns £170,000 per week at the Emirates Stadium but he has not lived up to his hefty weekly pay with his performances for the Gunners.
For now, the target for Unai Emery and his Arsenal Players is to deliver the Europa League trophy at the expense of London rivals Chelsea.
