Mesut Ozil’s agent claims the Arsenal player’s future is likely to be finalised in the next 10 days.
The 32-year-old midfielder has been left out of the Gunners’ squads so far this season despite being the club’s top earner on around £350,000-a-week. The German international’s contract at the club ends in the summer and he has attracted interest from clubs in Italy, the United States, Turkey, and Qatar.
Now Ozil’s agent, Dr Erkut Sogut, told ESPN about his next move.
“We were not allowed to talk legally before January 1 so now we are just starting to look at the options with the numbers and details,” said Sogut.
“I can’t talk about the clubs directly because it would be unprofessional but generally, there are six months left on the contract and it is nothing unusual that we will talk to people about different opportunities and try to find the best option for Mesut.
“He might stay at Arsenal until the summer but he might go. Mesut’s priority is to stay but you never know in football, things can change very fast. For the moment, we are just checking all the options for January and the summer.
“If we want to leave in January, I need to talk to Arsenal. If we sign for the summer, we don’t need to. That’s the situation. In the next seven to ten days, it will be a little clearer as now the transfer window is open, things can move faster.”
