AC Milan could be one of the clubs interested in signing Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil on a free transfer, according to a report.
Ozil arrived at Arsenal seven years ago from Real Madrid and has amassed 44 goals and 77 assists in 254 appearances across all competitions for the Gunners, but the club are not considering renewing his €385k-a-week contract, and as per the Daily Mail they could even rip it up early.
According to Calciomercato.it, Ozil will be a temptation for many European clubs who might be able to get more out of the 32-year-old than what his last couple of seasons at Arsenal suggest.
The report adds that Milan could be among the teams who make a move for him as the club hold him in high esteem and may even make a move in January, offering to take him off the hands of the North London club.
The Rossoneri management want to focus mainly on young players, but they know that players of experience can have a positive impact on the team, as seen with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Simon Kjaer.
Furthermore, if Hakan Calhanoglu were to decide not to renew then they would need another playmaker, but the report adds that Roma, Napoli and Fiorentina also have their eyes on the German attacking midfielder of Turkish origin.
