Marc Overmars is one of the Arsenal-legends from the 90’s. He wants his former club to sell their star-midfielder Mezut Özil, and he has the perfect replacement for him!
Unai Emery and Arsenal would be willing to let their star midfielder go this summer. The main reason is his salary: Mezut Özil is Arsenals top paid player with a weekly salary of £350 000! That makes up almost 20% of the clubs total wages for the first team squad.
But it will not be easy to find another club that would be willing to take over that kind of salary demands. So Mezut Özil might be sticking around Emirates Stadium for the last two years of his contract.
Former star player Marc Overmars has urged his old club to offload the german midfielder. And he has just the right man to replace him!
