Arsenal are ready to cash-in on Mesut Ozil and sell the playmaker in the January transfer window, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the north London side could be ready to let the Germany international leave in January rather than lose him on a free transfer in the summer.

The same report says that Italian club Inter Milan have shown a “strong” interest in signing the 28-year-old, whose current contract at Arsenal is due to expire at the end of the season.

The story also says that Ozil is demanding wages of £350,000 a week to stay at The Emirates and sign a new contract.

It is claimed that Arsenal have offered Ozil more than £275,000 a week but that they have not come close to an agreement with the German international.

The same story says that Arsenal could now be “tempted” to take a big-money offer for Ozil in the January transfer window should the right bid arrive.

Arsenal have been coping without Ozil in recent games, with the playmaker currently sidelined with a minor knee injury.

The Gunners return to Premier League action after the international break when they take on Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday 14 October.
