Transfer Update On Offloading Expensive Arsenal Star Mesut Ozil Has Emerged

Arsenal are keen to offload Mesut Ozil with just four days remaining in the summer transfer window, but they are yet to receive a ‘suitable offer' for the outcasted midfielder.

The Gunners are desperate to get the 31-year-old club-high £350,000-a-week wages off their books this summer, with Fenerbahce previously touted as potential suitors.

Saudi Arabian outfit Al-Nassr were also linked with a move for the German ace earlier in the window, reportedly offering him a staggering contract worth £15million per year.

With Lyon’s Houssem Aouar and Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey still on Arteta’s radar heading into the final few days of the window, Mikel Arteta's side reportedly need to offload some current stars to raise transfer funds.

However, Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth claims they are yet to receive any suitable offers for both Ozil and fellow outcast Matteo Guendouzi.

“As far as Mesut Ozil and Matteo Guendouzi are concerned, no suitable offers have come in for either player thus far, but we are expecting quite a frantic end to things at the Emirates,” Sheth said on The Transfer Show.
