Germany international Mesut Ozil is reportedly planning on leaving Arsenal at the end of this season.

According to German publication Sport Bild, the 28-year-old, whose situation is similar to his teammate Alexi Sanchez, could leave the club when the player’s contract comes to an end.

The 2014 FIFA World Cup winner is currently in the last year of their current deal and has apparently refused to negotiate a new one with the London club.

It’s believed that the Gunners have offered Ozil a new contract at the start of the year, but he has reportedly turned it down because he is not happy with the proposed wage.

The former Real Madrid star is rumoured to want around £250 000 (R4.3 million)-a-week, an amount Arsenal apparently are not willing to pay him right now.

Arsene Wenger says he is still hopeful that the attacking midfielder will renew his contract with the club, but admits that talks have stalled recently.

"The contract talks have slowed down a little bit since August 31, because we need a little breather and to focus on the competition. But we will slowly get back into that," Wenger said, as quoted by the Daily Mail.

If no deal is agreed upon in the next couple of months, Wenger could see Ozil go out and sign a pre-contract with another club in January.

The German has made 165 appearances for Arsenal so far, scoring 32 goals and further assisting in 57 more.
