Mesut Ozil and Arsenal are in negotiations regarding a possible early termination of the contract to allow the World Cup winner to secure a move elsewhere.

Ozil had previously stated that he intended to remain in the Emirates and fulfill his contract, but according to the athletic, he would be willing to give up part of his salary to secure a move from north London.
The 32-year-old is poised to pocket £ 7 million between January and the conclusion of his current contract with Arsenal at the end of June, but would be willing to leave some of this on the table to secure his departure from the Emirates.
The representatives of Arsenal and Ozil are in negotiations about the possible premature termination of their contract. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, he will continue to train with the Gunners’ first team until it expires.

There is a process at the moment. We cannot say it is over until we have signed him in the process. I hope lake.”
