This could be the last time the English Premier League club Arsenal will be holding talks with German international Mesut Ozil over his future as he now knows the stand of the club.

The former Real Madrid midfielder has been left out of the Arsenal Europa League squad to send the message that he is not a part of the team. Mesut Ozil has not played any competitive game for the Gunners since last year for technical reasons as claimed by manager Mikel Arteta.

It is understood that the North London outfit had eerier held talks with the World Cup winner, asking him to find a new club but he refused, insisting that he will be seeing out his contract with the club.

It is also reported that Mesut Ozil had offers from several clubs in different countries including USA, Turkey, and Qatar but decided against the offers to insist on staying at Arsenal, not minding if he plays or not.

Now, Arsenal will hold what could be the last talk with the club’s outcast, telling him of the need to need their relationship for him to leave the club in the January transfer window.

The Gunners will have to pay off Mesut Ozil whose contract with the club ends in the summer of 2021.
