But the bad news for Gunners fans is that the German is still determined to see out the final year of his contract before moving on a free transfer.

Playmaker Ozil, 31, pockets £350,000 a week and the club would love to cut their losses and offload him this summer.

But he has no intentions of leaving at the end of this season and will be unable to officially talk to prospective new teams until next January.

The midfielder quit international football due to criticism from the public after meeting Turkish president Recep Erdogan and there is no chance he will head back to the Bundesliga.

Ozil has yet to feature for Arsenal since the restart and the situation has become increasingly frustrating for those in the Emirates boardroom.

He has been on the bench three times in the last month but was not brought on by Arteta.

Equally, he has not been selected for the last three squads by Arteta.

Officially he has been suffering from “back soreness”.
