Arsenal are eager to find a buyer for Mesut Ozil.
ESPN says Arsenal are keen to sell Ozil this summer.
The club want to offload the player to raise funds, while ridding his £350,000-a-week salary from their wage bill.
Ozil is reluctant to leave and wants to run down his contract, but the relationship between player and manager remains professional and Mikel Arteta is open to playing the German.
The manager left Ozil at home for this week’s defeat at Manchester City.
