After being dropped from the first team by the coach Mikel Arteta, Mesut Ozil could leave the Arsenal in January 2021. The London club has been long looking for a path to sell the German player, who is the highest paid player in the club's history with a £350,000-a-week contract.
In this way, it might be the perfect time for the 32-year-old midfielder to take part in the Major League Soccer. DC United is the American club that is more interested in buying the German, who has not played for Arsenal since March 2020. However, it will be difficult to meet Ozil's requirements.
In recent weeks, Ozil has rejected an offer from Saudi Arabia. Al-Nassr made a £200,000-a-week contract offer, but he did not accept it. Therefore, if DC United wants to hire the former 2014 World Cup champion, they will have to make a higher offer than the Saudi Arabian team did.
Ozil is linked by contract with Arsenal until June 2021. He has been playing in the English team since 2013-2014 season. In total, he has scored 47 goals and gave 77 assists in 227 games. Besides, he has won four FA Cups and the same amount of Community Shield Cups.
