Arsenal legend Charlie Nicholas predicts Ozil will be sold in January

Former Arsenal star Charlie Nicholas predicts Unai Emery would be willing to sell Mesut Ozil in January if the club receives an attractive offer.

The Germany World Cup winner made an inauspicious start to life under Arsene Wenger’s successor Unai Emery, hauled off in the defeat against Chelsea and missing the recent win over West Ham through illness.

Emery was forced to deny reports of a training ground bust-up with the former Real Madrid playmaker but has publically demanded more from the club’s top earner who signed a new 350K-a-week contract in February.

Ozil has responded this week with goals in successive matches but Nicholas remains unconvinced he is totally committed to Emery’s project.

‘If this isn’t improved by January, and a decent offer comes in, Arsenal will let him go,’ the Scot said. ‘It keeps coming up that Fenerbahce and these sort of clubs would be interested in looking at him.
