Mesut Ozil edging closer to January transfer away from Arsenal

Inter Milan have shown an interest in taking Ozil, who is out of contract with Arsenal at the end of the current season

Arsenal are ready to try to find a January buyer for Mesut Ozil.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has already admitted publicly they may be forced to sell Alexis Sanchez and Ozil in the next window rather than lose them for free.

But they will actually try to drive a deal for Ozil as they have effectively given up hope on him signing a new deal.

There is also growing disenchantment with Ozil’s attitude and recent performances, particularly after Saturday’s defeat at Watford.

Arsenal have offered Ozil £275,000-a-week but the player’s representatives have demanded £350,000-a-week and comments from his camp last week that talks had been going well have been met with some bemusement.

The problem that Arsenal have is that Manchester City are keen on Sanchez but there has been a lack of interest in Ozil.

Inter Milan have publicly admitted they are keen and that is why they are now actively looking round for a buyer.

Arsenal have produced good results without Ozil and his introduction at Watford was the signal for them to blow a lead and lose at Vicarage Road.

His lack of intensity and enthusiasm has privately infuriated the dressing room and his days now appear to be numbered.
