Mesut Ozil is reportedly being offered to other sides by ‘intermediaries’, according to the latest reports.
The Arsenal playmaker only signed a fresh deal a year ago, but has found his game time slashed since Spanish coach Unai Emery took over at the Emirates Stadium.
Ozil has missed as many matches as he played in this term, and his future at the Gunners is clouded in doubt.
The Telegraph state intermediaries with strong connections to China and Italy are making checks on which side could afford Ozil.
The German earns £350,000 per week at Arsenal and the star’s wages were the major stumbling block to a possible departure in the January transfer market.
As well as being overlooked by Unai, Ozil has missed a number of matches and training sessions to illnesses and injuries.
Arsenal’s efforts to bring in reinforcements throughout January were severely hindered by their lack of transfer funds and Arsenal will be in a similar situation in the summer window if Emery fails to deliver UCL football.
Offloading Mesut could be a major injection of cash for the north Londoners, but only if the intermediaries can find a team to match the wage the attacking midfielder earns in London.
The mediators are not thought to be directly tied to the Gunners, however, it is expected the side would listen to offers for Mesut.
While the player is considered one of the most talented playmakers in the world, the Gunners fans have been continually frustrated by the 30-year-old German’s inconsistency and spells of absences.
