Mesut Ozil is prepared to leave Arsenal this month.
The Sun of UK reported that Ozil will offer Arsenal the chance to get him out of the club this month – by spreading payment of the rest of his contract over the next three years.
Ozil has options to leave the Emirates during the transfer window but the Gunners would need to cough up the remainder of his £350,000-a-week deal which still has six months to run.
The World Cup winner is in no mood to sacrifice the remaining £8.75million of the wages due to him just so Arsenal can get him off their wage bill with Fenerbahce and DC United both interested in his signature.
But he would be prepared to help the club out.
That would be by reaching a deal which would see them reduce their weekly payments to him to £68,000 until the summer of 2023.
