Dr. Erkut Sogut reported that amid interest from elsewhere, the 32-year-old is expected to see out his contract at Emirates Stadium.
Agent Dr. Erkut Sogut of Mesut Ozil has claimed that the German midfielder has received offers from all over the world, but insists that the 32-year-old will see out his contract with the Gunners.
Since March 2020, the former Real Madrid playmaker has not featured for the North Londoners and has been left out of Mikel Arteta’s Premier League and Europa League squad.
Since then the Spaniard has indicated that Ozil might be brought back into the fold in February, when after the closing of the January transfer window, tweaks to his original 25-man selection can be made.
Ozil will be able to hold negotiations about a future transfer in the New Year with foreign clubs, with the midfielder’s deal set to expire in the summer of 2021.
He was closely associated with a move to Turkish giants Fenerbahce and although Dr. Sogut acknowledged that preliminary talks had taken place, he maintained that a switch in January was impossible.
The representative of Ozil told Fanatik, “Mesut has another six months on his Arsenal deal. He has definitely missed football. He’s working hard at the moment to wear the Arsenal shirt again and he’s going to continue working.”
I would like to state our condition with regard to Fenerbahce clearly. Yeah, we’ve been holding meetings with them. We had a one-on-one discussion with top individuals from the club. We can’t have formal transfer talks prior to January, however. From all over the world, we have received transfer offers for Mesut. The priorities of Fenerbahce are also established.
“Nothing has changed for Mesut right now. In these circumstances, it would seem that Mesut will complete the season at Arsenal.”
Ozil has been called upon to be reintegrated into the Emirates Stadium first-team squad, with Arsenal beginning the 2020-21 campaign in a dismal fashion.
In the Premier League table, the Gunners are 15th and have only scored 11 goals, while their 1-1 draw last time out with Southampton extended a miserable streak of six league games without a victory.
