Many Arsenal fans gave mixed responses to a transfer rumour involving Mesut Ozil.
The German midfielder has struggled for game time so far this season, however, these fans still think there is reason to keep the 30-year-old.
So far this season, he has played just 142 minutes over two games against Watford in the league and against Nottingham Forest in the EFL Cup. Furthermore, he has failed to make the squad on five separate occasions this campaign, leaving a lot of his alleged £350k-per-week wages (according to Spotrac) to go to waste.
It suggests that Ozil is ready to leave Arsenal in January due to his lack of game time, and that Arsenal would also be willing to front some of his massive wages.
Takvim claims that if everything goes to plan, a ‘dream’ transfer could be on the cards for the Turkish side.
Arsenal fan account @GurjitAFC tweeted the news and many fans reacted.

We need him.
Hope it's false.

Not the biggest Ozil fan, but we clearly struggle to create chances against teams like Bournemouth which should be easy. Tell me who at Arsenal offers the same as Özil creatively?

I am sure ozil can help our team which creates next to nothing offensively. But we are third so it sounds a but rich to comment like this.. next few games will make it clear
