Midfielder Mesut Ozil should not leave Arsenal in this transfer window and will fulfill his contract until the end of next season, according to the German’s manager, Erkut Sogut, in an interview with the “Fanatik” portal. The player receives £ 350,000 a week and is one of the highest-paid athletes in English football.
“I don’t think Ozil will leave Arsenal before the (European) summer of 2021. He has a contract in progress that hasn’t changed. He will stay at Arsenal. When his contract ends, I estimate the chance of him leaving by 90%. Maybe for Asia, America, Turkey, who knows. “
Even with the permanence of Ozil, the portal Le10Sport stated that Mikel Arteta asked the Arsenal board to hire Philippe Coutinho to reinforce the team. Barcelona asks for an amount of 80 million euros to sell him and does not accept exchanges with other players. It is already known that Coutinho has an interest in returning to English football and besides Arsenal, Everton, Leicester, and Newcastle also appear as interested.
