Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil is ready to give up nearly £ 7million the club still owe him to leave for free, Athletic report.
Ozil remains in talks with the Gunners regarding his inevitable exit this month.
The 32-year-old is also negotiating with Fenerbahce and DC United over a move.
Ozil has been excluded from Mikel Arteta’s Premier League and Europa League sides for the first half of the season.
It is understood that the German was not informed of the decision until shortly before the last transfer window closed on October 5.
At that time, there was little time to organize a departure.
If he were to move in January, it would be to the Turkish club, with a stint to MLS potentially coming this summer if that was his best option.
