CM: Arsenal ready to offload €383k-a-week man to fund €25m move for Milan target

By Oliver Fisher -

Arsenal want to get Mesut Ozil off their books in order to facilitate a move for Red Bull Salzburg star Dominik Szoboszlai, a report claims.

The Athletic reporter David Ornstein (via RouteOneFootball) claimed earlier this week that Bundesliga side RB Leipzig are the team who are currently leading the chase to land the 20-year-old Hungarian.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) reported that Hakan Calhanoglu is currently not close to reaching an agreement over a renewal and therefore he could leave, and Milan do not want to be caught unprepared if he does go.

For that reason dialogue with the entourage of Szoboszlai is ongoing. The 20-year-old has many admirers around Europe, but seems to favour a move to join Milan.

According to Calciomercato.com, there is not only Milan and RB Leipzig who want the playmaker as Arsenal are also in the running.

Not only that, but the Gunners are ready to sell Mesut Ozil who is not part of Mikel Arteta’s plans to open the doors for Szoboszlai to arrive, given that Ozil earns £350k-a-week (around €383k, via BleacherReport).
