EPL: Arsenal set in Mesut Ozil dilemma


English Premier League club, Arsenal are now in a big dilemma over how to get rid of Mesut Ozil from the Emirates Stadium this summer transfer window.

The £350,000 weekly wage of the Germany international midfielder has been a big burden on the Gunners and they are keen to lay it off but that has not been easy with Mesut Ozil not ready to leave the club.

The career of the World Cup winner has been going down the slope because of his non-involvement in games, especially during the restart of the Premier League but that has been of no concern to him.

However, his employers are in the dilemma of either paying him off or having him agree on a move in a subsidized wage bill.

The decision to take for Arsenal has not been an easy one as there is a need to free up some financial space to be able to accommodate new recruits.

Mesut Ozil has been receiving offers from a number of clubs in the United States, Italy, Turkey, and Spain but he has turned down all of the bids for a forceful relational with Arsenal.

Meanwhile, manager Mikel Arteta is planning a major overhaul of the team with Mesut Ozil expected to be a part of it.
