Mesut Ozil in contract termination talks as German demands close to £13m

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil is reportedly in contract talks with the Gunners to have his £350,000-per week contract terminated but the German is holding out for almost the full £13m he is due.

Ozil, 31, joined Arsenal from Real Madrid all the way back in 2013 in a move which cost the Gunners £42.3m as per TransferMarkt.

Since the German midfielder arrived in London, he has featured in a total of 254 matches in all competitions for Arsenal and been directly involved in 111 goals.

However, despite a seven year long spell with the club, the German’s time in the country’s capital looks set to be finally coming to an end.

According to a recent report from Daily Mail the German is currently in talks with his club over the possibility of terminating his current contract which still has nine-months to run.

The midfielder earns an eye-watering £350,000-per week at Arsenal and is believed to be holding out for near £13m which is almost all of what’s left on his contract.
