Mikel Arteta warns Mesut Ozil he WON’T be allowed to leave Arsenal unless the deal is right as he admits £350,000-a-week outcast’s future will be decided ‘in the next few days’ with Fenerbahce trying to close a deal

  • Mikel Arteta has said Mesut Ozil’s Arsenal future will be resolved this week
  • Arsenal are trying to get Ozil off their books in the January transfer window
  • Fenerbahce are frontrunners but Arteta insisted the deal has to be right 

Mikel Arteta has said Mesut Ozil’s future at Arsenal will be resolved in the next few days, with the manager insisting he will keep the exiled playmaker if the right deal cannot be found during the January transfer window.

As reported by Sportsmail, Arsenal are trying to clinch Ozil’s early departure this month. The World Cup winner was not included in Mikel Arteta’s Premier League or European squads for the opening half of the season and has not played for the club since March. 

Fenerbahce and a number of MLS clubs – including DC United – are interested in the 32-year-old, who earns £350,000 a week.
