Mesut Özil ‘only considering relocations to Turkey or the US next summer and is determined to see Arsenal’s £ 350,000 a week last year’
- Mesut Ozil has not played for Arsenal since football started again last month
- He’s been on the couch three times, but Mikel Arteta hasn’t used a playmaker
- Özil is determined to enter into a £ 350,000 per week contract for the last year
- He reportedly plans to move to Turkey or the US when he leaves Gunners
Mesut Özil is “determined to see the final year of his Arsenal deal at £ 350,000 a week and will consider moving to Turkey or the US next summer.”
Mikel Arteta has not used Ozil, the club’s highest paid player, since football restarted last month, despite sitting on the bench three times.
According to the Sun, Ozil has no intention of leaving Arsenal in the transfer window and wants to leave for free after next season.

The relationship between club and player seems tense, as the Arsenal hierarchy is eager to get its wages off the books.
But Ozil, who is reportedly suffering from a sore back, wants to stay for the 2020-21 campaign.
The 31-year-old is not interested in returning to play in the Bundesliga, given the strong public criticism from the public after meeting Turkish President Recep Erdogan.

And Ozil has reportedly told friends that he will only consider the MLS in the United States or Turkey as his next destination.
His production has plummeted this season to continue the downturn in recent years with just one goal and two assist to his name.
Arteta’s team performed well in the absence of Ozil and had four wins in a row before Wednesday’s 1-1 draw against Leicester.
The Gunners are preparing for a huge clash on Sunday with North London rivals Tottenham and the victory would be a huge boost in terms of bragging rights and chances of a finish in European places.
