According to information published by a series of British newspapers, Ozil has reached an agreement to liquidate the contract with Arsenal to leave freely.
Ozil reached an agreement to leave Arsenal in a free form in January
At the present time, Mesut Ozil has 6 months of contract with a salary of 350 thousand pounds / week. The problem worth discussing is that he is not part of Mikel Arteta’s plan to use. In theory, the German midfielder can stay at Emirates until the end of the season to receive the remaining 7 million salary before leaving free.
Arsenal did not want to spend such a large expense at the time they were in financial trouble. Therefore, in the past few days, the two sides have had many negotiation sessions to find the best solution. Official information has not been announced by Arsenal, but according to The Athletic, the Gunners have reached an agreement to liquidate the contract with Mesut Ozil.
That means Ozil will become a free player in January. The German midfielder has accepted to sacrifice the remaining 7 million salary to join Fenerbahce freely as desired.
Ozil’s decision also helps Arsenal solve the big financial problem for the rest of the season. A few days ago, Ozil himself announced that he wanted to go to the US or Fenerbahce to play. This is said to be the reason why the German star accepted to negotiate to leave soon.
This season, Ozil has been in a very difficult situation when coach Arteta is eliminated from the list of registration in both the Premier League and the Europa League. The last time he played for the Gunners was more than 10 months ago, in a 1-0 win over West Ham. At that time, he assisted Lacazette to score the only goal.
With the decision to liquidate the contract, Mesut Ozil ended nearly eight years with Arsenal with 254 games, 44 goals and 77 assists. If nothing changes, in the next few days, the 32-year-old German star will go to Turkey to complete his contract with Fenerbahce.
