Arsenal want to loan out Mesut Ozil in January – even if they have to subsidise his wages.
World Cup winner Ozil is Arsenal’s top earner on £350,000-a-week but is a bit part player under Unai Emery.
Arsenal would therefore rather let him go out on loan and another club pay part of his wages rather than allow him to just sit on the bench or make the odd appearance.
Gunners boss Emery has struggled to accommodate 30-year-old Ozil in his system and the former Germany midfielder has started just one Premier League game this season.
Ozil’s situation has been made even worse by a security scare in the summer when he was targeted by knife-wielding car jackers.
