Arsenal open to offers for their most expensive player

Arsenal are reportedly prepared to listen to offers for Mesut Ozil in the January transfer window.

Ozil was left out of the Arsenal squad for Wednesday’s EFL Cup quarter-final with Tottenham Hotspur, and Gunners boss Unai Emery said that the German was omitted for “tactical reasons”.

According to The Independent, Emery does not see Ozil as part of his first XI at the Emirates Stadium, and the club would be prepared to sell if the right offer arrived at the start of 2019.

Ozil only signed a new long-term contract with the Gunners in February though, with the playmaker now collecting wages in the region of £300,000 a week.

Inter Milan have been credited with an interest in a player who has scored four times in 14 appearances for his London club during the 2018-19 campaign.
