Ozil to partner Musa in Saudi Arabia for €16.8 Million


Super Eagles star Ahmed Musa and embattled Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil are set to become teammates in Saudi Arabia according to latest report emanating from Turkey.

Saudi Arabian outfit Al Nassr where the Nigeria international plies his trade has reportedly offered Ozil  €16.8m a-year to cross over from the Emirates stadium where he has been having a running battle for some time now.

Ozil, who signed a whopping £350,000-a-week contract back in January 2018, became a peripheral figure under Mikel Arteta last season.

Ozil has been and integral part of the Gunners team for seven years running but has in recent time been sidelined to the point that he neither took part in the FA Cup nor the Community Shield  both of which the team won with team captain and Gabon international Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang playing a major role.

According to Turkish outlet Fanatik, Saudi Arabian outfit Al Nassr have been in touch with the former Real Madrid man’s representatives and wish to draft him in as a marquee signing.

They are willing to offer him wages of €16.8m a-year and are hopeful of agreeing terms with him for a move that could be a free transfer next year if they cannot secure his services in the current window.

Commenting on Ozil’s situation in June, Arteta told Sky Sports: “I’ve been very open with Mesut from day one.

“I thought he was fit and willing and wanted to perform at the level he can do. I think he has played every game with me.
