Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil attracting interest from clubs in Saudi Arabia and Qatar

Arsenal are desperate to offload Mesut Ozil and clubs in Saudi Arabia and Qatar have registered their interest in signing the midfielder, according to reports.




The 31-year-old has been frozen out of squad and didn’t feature once after the Premier League restart last season.

Ozil was again nowhere to be seen for the Gunners’ Community Shield victory over Liverpool on Saturday, despite Mikel Arteta’s claims that ‘everybody starts from zero’ for the new campaign.

The German has made clear that his plan is to see out the remaining year of his contract at the north London club.

Reports in Turkey say that Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr are ready to tempt him away with an annual salary of around £15million, while the Telegraph claim that an unnamed Qatari club are also interested in signing the playmaker.

Ozil’s exorbitant wages of £350,000-per-week have proven to be a burden that the north London club no longer want to take on.

Speaking in an explosive interview with the Athletic earlier this month, the midfielder reinforced his stance that he is looking to stay at the club until the end of his deal next summer.

‘My position is clear,’ Ozil said. ‘I’m here through to the last day of our agreement and I’ll give everything I have for this club. ‘I’ll decide when I go, not other people.



‘I didn’t sign for two or three years, I signed for four and that should be respected by everyone. ‘Things have obviously been difficult but I love Arsenal, I love to work there, I love the people in the club — the real people, those I’ve been with for a long time — and I love London, it’s my home. ‘Whatever happened in the last two seasons, I’m happy and very strong mentally. I never give up on anything. I want to help my team and I’ll fight for it. If I’m fit, I know what I can do on the pitch.’
