Arsenal will be looking to sell Mesut Ozil in the summer transfer window since he has not been impressive in the last two years despite being the highest paid player at the club. The German international would however need replacing if he left and former Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell has given out names that the gunners should consider.

Mesut Ozil has only one assist and a goal in the league this season and that’s a pretty low return when he is someone who is currently earning £350k a week and so Arsenal will want to reduce on their wage bill by selling him in the summer as the amount they would save from scrapping off his salary  could be spent in improving others areas in the squad.

Former Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell who was a striker for the gunners from 1988 to 1995 believes that is finally time for the gunners to say goodbye to Ozil because it’s time to get young players that have got legs and that can break play as well as creating chances. Campbell says Arsenal should replace Ozil with either Jack Grealish or James Maddison.

“Arsenal need an all-rounder in midfield, Arsenal need someone in the middle of the pitch who not only can create, he can break the play up, but he’s got legs, we miss that. We’ve been a strong spine for years.” Kevin Campbell exclusively told Metro.

“There was talk of should we go for Jack Grealish or James Maddison, these type of guys would improve Arsenal. No disrespect to Mesut Ozil, but Ozil is on the wrong side of his Arsenal career with a year left on his contract after this.”

Mesut Ozil still has one more year on his current contract at Arsenal and it’s still unknown whether he will accept to leave the gunners in the upcoming summer transfer window but if we were go with what his agent usually says, then he definitely won’t be leaving until his contract expires in 2021.
