G'day Ed's, I can't believe I'm asking this, but could our polarising enigma, Mesut Ozil really be one of the players that Unai Emery is looking to replace?

Repeated criticism of the player and his absence from the squad in key matches has left me wondering.


{Ed002's Note - The problem the club has is in selling him - finding a buyer who will match his wages. They will be regretting giving him a new contract and payrise earlier this year.}

Fair point Ed, not many clubs have £350k/ week lying around. Unless Real Madrid are open to taking him back, you think we could be stuck without a buyer?

I would certainly be interested in an Isco-Ozil swap, not sure how possible that is.

It seems Emery is keen on having someone more robust and with a higher work rate, although I find myself in awe of MO10's skill and grace at times.

It's a hard call for me.

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal will be stuck with him unless they cut him lose of his contract or a buyer can be found. Real Madrid has no interest in him and Arsenal has no interest in Isco.}

Thanks for the info Ed, the press was reporting interest in Isco from Arsenal and others, hence why I asked.

Thanks for clearing that up.

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath about Isco but there is interest in him from elsewhere and it seems a discussion was held during a meeting of various clubs in Milan on Tuesday evening.}

Judging from team selctions and instinct I have a feeling certain players will ultimately be moved on by Emery. I like Emery's decisiveness.
It will be interesting to see what happens with the following players:
Ramsey: Out of contract this summer. Moving on.
Welbeck: Out of contract in the summer and recuperating from a serious ankle injury.
Monreal: Out of contract this summer.
Cech: Out of contract this summer.
Lichtsteiner: Out of contract this summer.

The following players may also be moved on this summer:

I believe that Ozil and Mkhitaryan may also be surplus to requirements, but as Ed002 stated, it will be difficult to find clubs able and willing to match their extraordinarily inflated wage packets. Unless there is demand from China and the players are willing to go there. Interesting and enjoyable times at the club.

I don't get why we don't just enjoy having Mesut Ozil, when he's hot he's worth watching any game he graces and when he's not so hot he's never alone.
If Dick doesn't want him that's his choice and I back him in it because he has his own plans of course.
But if Mesut Ozil is ever the worst player on our books we will have some team that's for sure.
Only 3 Arsenal player make the combined Spurs/ Arsenal 11 from voting fans of all clubs and Mesut is 1 of our 3 players, makes you think, doesn't it?

Combined 11s are a joke g62, but agree with the rest of your post.
