Mesut Ozil Demands 68 Million Pounds Per Week From Arsenal Till 2023 To Exit The Club: The Ozil saga is refusing to finish with the player adamant on looting the club as long as he can
Despite being left out of Mikel Arteta’s plans way back in the tailend of the 2019-20 season, Mesut Ozil has refused to depart Arsenal. With him being on an extremely lucrative 350,000 pounds per week deal, the midfielder has been way too happy to put his feet up and bask in the sun.
Despite not getting a minute of football in the 2020-21 with Arteta refusing to select him in the club’s squad, Ozil has decided to see out the remainder of the contract. The 32 year old player is clearly more interested in bagging home his handsome amount rather than reviving his career.
With Arteta deciding to brazen it out as well, Ozil looks to have finally conceded that he no longer has a future at the club. The player has been heavily linked to Fenerbache and DC United with a January transfer gaining steam.
However, money has once again emerged as a hinderance to any potential deal with the player not willing to budge for Arsenal without being paid in full. The player wants Arsenal to pay out his full 7.2 million pound contract before he decides to free the club of his searing headache.

As per reports from England, Ozil has offered Arsenal a 68,000 pound per week plan till 2023, one which would see the club’s spending per month be scissored by 1.2 million pounds per month.
While it remains to be seen if Arsenal are willing to take that deal, the club is evidently extremely eager to offload the outcast. Ozil has been bleeding the club of money across the last couple of seasons with the player’s lacklustre attitude and unwillingness to put in the long hours seeing both Emery and Arteta run out of patience with him.
Arteta had only recently spoken about the ongoing impasse between the two parties.
“I’m saying we will decide what’s happening in the next few days,’ Arteta said. “I don’t know what is going to happen. Obviously now he’s free to negotiate with other clubs.
“We will discuss internally what the best solution for him is for the near future, obviously with the player and agent too, and try to find the best solution for everyone.”
