Is Mesut Ozil trying to punish Arsenal?

Mesut Ozil

There is a lot to think about on the contract issues of Germany international Mesut Ozil and his “forceful” relationship with North London outfit Arsenal.

Mesut Ozil has been in and out of the Arsenal team for a number of years as it did not start with manager Mikel Arteta but with Unai Emery because he was always not favoured for selection while there are rumours of fracas with the managers.

Efforts to push the World Cup winner away from the club have failed as he has continued to insist that he would see out his contract with Arsenal despite having little playing time. He has barely had a game since the restart of the season.

Now it is being reported that he has offers from five countries, including the USA, Qatar, Italy, Japan, and Turkey but not ready for any move yet. He has continued to stress that he will see out his contract at the Emirates Stadium.

Seeing out his contract means he would be leaving the club as a free player and the Gunners will not be able to earn despite the huge financial investment of £350.000 weekly wage with his little contribution.

It is feared that there may be more to Mesut Ozil’s continued stay at Arsenal amidst controversies that is known to him alone. After losing Aaron Ramsey for free, it would be unfair to the Gunners to lose Mesut Ozil without earning.
