Report: Özil told he can leave Arsenal amid AC Milan interest

By Isak Möller -

Following a summer full of rumours, we are getting ready for yet another transfer period, namely the January window. Given that AC Milan are in need of experience, a few signings might arrive. 

As reported by the Turkish outlet Fotospor (via MilanNews.it), Mesut Özil have been told by Arsenal that he isn’t part of their project anymore, thus allowing him to leave the club as early as January.

Furthermore, as the report states, Özil’s wife has already sold their house in London. In other words, a transfer shouldn’t be ruled out come January, given that several teams are interested in his services. Then again, it most likely will come down to salary request.

As MilanNews.it adds in the article, it could be an opportunity for Milan as the Rossoneri are looking for experienced players. However, the likes of Inter and Napoli are also interested, meaning there is tough competition for the midfielder.
