With Ozil missing four crucial games of Arsenal’s unbeaten run many have begun speculating about his future and suggesting he could leave the club.
Arsenal legend Ian Wright claims his performances have not been good enough to warrant paying him £350,000 a week.
“As good as [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan and Ozil are, in respect to what they’re earning we’re talking about £500,000-a-week,” Wright said on BBC 5 Live Sport earlier this week.
“I do not believe that Arsenal can afford to be paying that sort of money without getting a return, especially when you look at what they’re trying to do at the moment.
“You’re going to lose [Aaron] Ramsey as well who probably wants £200,000 so we’re going up to £700,000-a-week in money that we’re going to have to give.
