Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil reportedly refuses to sign a new contract with the Gunners, instead offering himself up to Barcelona.

Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil is reportedly refusing to sign a new contract with the club as he attempts to push through a move to Barcelona.

The 28-year-old is into the final 12 months of his deal at the Emirates and is seeking a significant increase on his current wage of £140,000 under his next contract.

Arsene Wenger's side are recently thought to have offered him fresh terms worth £225,000 a week amid a lack of interest in the German from top clubs around Europe.

According to Don Balon, Ozil's agent has now 'offered him to Barcelona', who are in the market for new recruits following the world-record exit of Neymar for Paris Saint-Germain.

The La Liga giants are said to be "considering" the move, having been seemingly thwarted in their attempts to land Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund starlet Ousmane Dembele.

Prior to his move to Arsenal, Ozil spent three seasons with bitter rivals Real Madrid, making 159 appearances in all competitions and scoring 27 times.
