Mesut Ozil teases exit, Medical to be completed on Friday as player landed in London, Maitland-Niles bid increased.



Mesut Ozil’s teases transfer exit talk

Mesut Ozil has caused a buzz among Arsenal fans with his latest social media post.

The German international remains frozen out at the Emirates as he winds down the final year of his £350,000-per-week contract.

While talk of an exit has surfaced there have been few potential suitors. Teammates Lucas Torreira and Sead Kolasinac do look like finding new employers before the window closes.

And while it may be a coincidence, Ozil tagged all three in an Instagram story saying in German ‘everything taken apart’ while filming weights on the floor in the club gym.

That has seen some Arsenal fans speculate that Ozil could be about to leave the club.

Ozil and Torreira have been linked with exits during this window.

Houssem Aouar medical to be completed on Friday

The Houssem Aouar Arsenal transfer saga may finally be coming to an end, according to breaking reports this afternoon.

The Frenchman has long been linked with a move from Lyon to Arsenal, while other big names such as Manchester City and Juventus have also been mentioned as suitors.

More recently, however, it has looked like the Aouar Arsenal transfer was the most likely outcome, and it now seems he’s edging closer to completing his switch to the Emirates Stadium.

See below as journalist Sam Hart claims Aouar is in London for his medical with Arsenal, and the deal now looks set to be completed by Friday…

Arsenal badly need a signing of this type, so fans will hope this is finally the breakthrough they’ve been waiting for on the 22-year-old.

Should Maitland-Niles be sold?

Despite previous uncertainty surrounding him, it finally seems as though Ainsley Maitland-Niles will still be an Arsenal player at the end of deadline day next week.

Reports coming out from the Metro state that he could be joining Manchester United, however Arsenal are adamant that he won’t be going anywhere.

“Maitland-Niles was on the brink of a £30million switch to Wolves earlier this summer but Mikel Arteta made it clear that the versatile 23-year-old remained a key part of his plans for the future after an outstanding performance in the Community Shield.”

A performance that in my eyes he has failed to replicate since!

The Metro also states; “Arsenal and Arteta had backtracked on this stance, with United holding advanced discussions to land Maitland-Niles in a £20m deal plus bonuses and add-ons.”

If Arteta wants to raise the funds to buy long-term target Aouar then the best place to start would surely be to get rid of Maitland-Niles, especially if they can offload him for the £30m fee that would bring us closer to being able to make a decent enough bid to Lyon for Aouar, decent enough that they would let him go anyway.

I know Maitland has the potential to become a decent player, but in my opinion, the only good performance I saw him have was in the Community Shield final against Liverpool, and he has had chances to showcase that talent he showed on the day but he has failed to do so.

I think we should cash in for him if we have the chance to make our own chances of bagging Aouar a lot more easier, because the way it is going at the moment it is 50/50 on whether we will get him and knowing Arsenal it will go down to deadline day! Gooners?
