Mesut Ozil could leave Arsenal now with MLS, Qatar, Portugal and Brazil transfer windows still open

Posted Friday, October 23, 2020 by

MESUT OZIL still has a number of escape options from Arsenal even though the European transfer window has ended.

The 32-year-old has not played since March for the Gunners as Mikel Arteta’s side attempted to force their highest-paid player out of the club.

But after failing to reach a pay-off settlement with the £350,000-a-week German World Cup winner, the attacker has been left out in the cold this term.

Arteta has left Ozil out of both his 25-man Premier League and European squads, leaving him unable to feature for the North Londoners.

The star, who joined from Real Madrid in 2013, released an emotional statement yesterday hitting out at the ‘lack of loyalty’ shown to him by Arsenal.

And he also vowed not to be forced out of the club and promised to give everything in order to regain his place in the team.

Despite that promise, Arsenal are still desperate to shift Ozil as quickly as possible.

And there are a number of places he could still go if he gives in and leaves - with the MLS believed to be favourite to get him.

The summer window in the US would normally be closed by the second week of August - but due to the coronavirus crisis it was extended until October 29.

And DC United are the latest team to be linked with a swoop for the ace.

Ozil has been linked with a move to the States in the past, but his vast wages could provide a problem, and it may have to wait until January before any potential deal could be concluded.

But that is not his only option - with one being much closer to home.

Portuguese clubs have until October 25 to finalise business.

Meanwhile, a switch to South America may tickle his fancy should he receive an offer - and Brazilian sides have until November 9 to bring players in.

Amore likely option financially could be the money-laden Middle East.

He has been linked with a move to Qatar, but any interested clubs will have to move fast with their deadline also being on October 25.
