Mesut Ozil 'has transfer offers from around world but set to see out Arsenal contract and leave at end of season'

MESUT OZIL has received 'transfers offers from around the world' but looks set to see out his Arsenal contract, according to the player's agent.

The German playmaker, 32, last turned out for the Gunners on March 7 and still has six months left to run on his £350,000-a-week deal at the Emirates.

His agent claims he is not short of options ahead of the January transfer window, especially from Turkey with talks taking place with Fenerbahce.

But he expects his client to stay put in North London for the remainder of the season – and fight to appear under Mikel Arteta again.

Dr Erkut Sogut told Fanatik: "Mesut has another six months on his contract with Arsenal. Certainly he has missed football.

"He is currently working hard to wear the Arsenal shirt again, and he will continue to work.

"We received transfer offers for Mesut from all over the world. Fenerbahce's interest is also known. 

"I would like to clearly state our situation regarding Fenerbahce. Yes, we had meetings with them. 

"We had a one-on-one conversation with the club's top people. However, we can't have official transfer talks before January. 

"Nothing has changed for Mesut right now. Under these circumstances, it seems that Mesut will complete the season at Arsenal."

Ozil was left out of Arsenal's Premier League and Europa League squads at the beginning of the season.

He is a reported target for a number of MLS sides with DC United, LA Galaxy and David Beckham's Inter Miami all keen.

Boss Mikel Arteta has admitted Ozil COULD return to his side in 2021 with the club languishing in 15th in the Premier League, desperately lacking a creative spark.

The Gunners boss said: "He's not in the squad right now. I'm focusing just on the players we have here. 

"But, whatever happens in January, we have some time to decide."

Sogut added the World Cup winner is 'loyal' and 'loves Arsenal and the fans and is deeply sorry that he has not been given a chance this season'.
