The Germany international has just one year left on his contract.

He could easily decide to not kick a ball for the first team next season and still pick up his wages.

But the Gunners now plan to pay his contract up in full to get him the hell out of Dodge, claims the Mirror.

Ozil has fallen out of favour with previous bosses Arsene Wenger and Unai Emery.

But a series of poor performances for Arteta has convinced the Spaniard he must move the player on.

The last straw came when he refused to take a pay cut due to the coronavirus pandemic.

That did not impress Emirates bean counters, who have been forced to lay off 55 staff.

It will be the start of a summer shake-up for Arteta.

He plans to off-load midfielders Matteo Guendouzi, Lucas Torreira and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Utility player Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Greek defender Sokratis and Serbian left-back Sead Kolasinac are also surplus to requirements.


But without Ozil’s crazy wages, Arteta could have an extra £18m a year to play with to reshape his squad.

Some of the bigger clubs in Turkey are thought to be interested in bringing in Ozil, a World Cup winner with Germany in 2014.

Ozil, 31, made just 18 Prem appearances for the Gunners last season.
