Mesut Ozil has no future in Arsenal, and everyone knew that. Now the 32-year-old midfielder has also been removed from the Premier League application. It is a great chance that he has already played his last match in Arsenal.
Mesut Ozil’s crisis has reached a new ‘peak’ in Arsenal London: he is no longer in the Premier League list!
Once the internal transfer window closed, Premier League clubs were due to submit 25-man applications on Tuesday. Mesut Ozil is not on Arsenal’s list. Earlier, the London club did not include Ozil, who has not played for Arsenal since March, in the Europa League application. It seems that Mesut will not play for the “Gunners” in the Premier League. His contract expires in the summer.
While it was clear that head coach Mikel Arteta was planning a season without Ozil, Mesut refused to replace the club. He did not want to give up a very high salary. Now the 32-year-old attacking midfielder can only play for the Under-23 team.
By the way, the same goes for Socrates (32 years old, contract until 2021), who is also no longer in Arteta’s interestes.
In the first round of the Europa League, Arsenal will play Vienna Rapid on Thursday.
