Arsenal offered £40m-rated midfielder to three Turkish clubs

Arsenal have offered out midfielder Mesut Ozil to many Turkish sides this transfer window.

The Gunners have asked Istanbul Basaksehir, Fenerbahce and Galatasaray if they would like to sign the German ace ahead of next campaign.

Arsenal are willing to pay a portion of his wages for the first couple of years he spends away from the club, so to free up more funds for the manager to spend this summer and Mesut Ozil will not be a big miss for the English club.

Mesut Ozil was once regarded as one of the best, if not the best, playmakers in the world, having impressed at Real Madrid and German national team.

The former Germany international is now a shell of the player he once was and endured a disappointing 2018/19 season with the Gunners – contributing to just seven goals in 25 Premier League matches.

Previously dubbed the “assist king”, Mesut Ozil managed to provide two assists in the league last term and missed far too many matches with, what appeared to be, micro injuries.

The Premier League giants would be better off cashing in on Mesut Ozil and signing a player to replace him who better fits the style of play Unai Emery wants to employ at Emirates during his reign.

Meanwhile, the Gunners are trying to lure Wilfried Zaha to north London, but Crystal Palace are not going to sell their star man and have demanded £100 million for the in-demand winger.
