Arsenal are reportedly set to step up their efforts to offload unwanted attacker Mesut Ozil.
The 31-year-old has not turned out for the Gunners since March, while he has not even made Mikel Arteta's first-team squad for any match since the start of the 2020-21 campaign.
Arsenal attempted to sell the former Germany international over the summer, but there were no takers with the attacker's contract due to expire next June.
According to talkSPORT, the London club are hoping to sell Ozil during the January transfer window but would also consider paying him off before his deal officially comes to an end.
The former Real Madrid playmaker is believed to earn in excess of £350,000 a week at the Emirates Stadium but has largely struggled to justify that outlay since signing the new deal in early 2018.
Ozil has scored 44 times and registered 77 assists in 254 appearances for the Gunners.
