Mesut Ozil signed a new big money contract in 2018 to extend his stay at Arsenal but little did the hierarchy or the fans know that this was a decision that would later haunt them a few years later. The gunners want Mesut Ozil off their wage bill to try to improve other positions and his representative has openly revealed when the midfielder will leave.
Mesut Ozil has only been able to get four Premier League assists in the last two seasons and this is a very poor return if you put in consideration that he is the highest paid player at Arsenal with the wages of £350,000 a week. There have been many reports claiming that Arsenal will be looking to convince Mesut Ozil to leave the club this summer to cut on their big wage bill since they have spent many years without UEFA Champions League money.
Mesut Ozil agent/ representative Dr. Erkut Söğüt has come out to respond on these transfer rumours surrounding his client and has revealed that Mesut Ozil will leave Arsenal at the end of 2021 when his contract with the North London club expires.
“I don’t think anything will happen in Mesut Özil until the summer of 2021. He already has a contract. Nothing changed. He will stay in Arsenal.” said Ozil’s representative as per Fanatik.
“90 percent will leave Arsenal in 2021. Sure to leave a new club. Mesut Asia, America and Turkey Could status or not? Yes, maybe.”
The statement by the agent of Mesut Ozil will certainly not be a big surprise to the gooners as its already known how the 31 year old is happy in London and will not leave Arsenal in pursuit of minutes even though Mikel Arteta seems determined to not bringing him back to the squad. It’s going to be interesting if this will make the gunners to stop offering him to clubs since he doesn’t want to leave as per his representative.
