Mesut Ozil is Arsenal’s highest-earning player but he has not been featuring regularly. In fact, he has played only once since Boxing Day with an appearance against Cardiff City.
Many a time, he has been left on the bench by Unai Emery. Given the uncertainty over his future, there are strong suggestions that he could be on his way out of the club this summer.
And as per reports from CalcioMercato, the German midfielder has been offered to Italian club Inter Milan recently. However, Milan are not keen on bringing the midfielder on board due to his high wages and recent performances.
The Italian publication further claims that Ozil was also offered to the Italian giants last year but Inter turned down the chance to sign him.
Ozil was not part of the Gunners squad that faced Huddersfield but the club clarified that this was due to an illness. Even then, it is hard to not think that there is a breakdown in the relationship between the German and the Arsenal hierarchy.
He signed a new contract last January and it seemed that the club decided to choose Ozil over Alexis Sanchez who left for Manchester United. The new contract which is said to be in the region of £350,000-a-week is the highest Arsenal have paid for any player in their history.
Given the amount of money that is at play here, it seems strange that the player is not being given many chances. Perhaps it is a case of the manager not trusting him enough.
But the truth is that we do not really know the internal dealings of the club so at this point, we can only speculate. If Ozil was to leave the club, it will be hard to see a club that will be willing to pay his wages.
It will be interesting to see what the future holds and if the German will be a part of the club in the upcoming seasons.
