Gooners wont cry! Arsenal told to sell £350,000-a-week Man United target Ozil this january
Vinnie Jones says selling top earner Mesut Ozil in the January transfer window is a ‘no brainer’ for Arsenal.
Ozil is once again out injured for the Gunners, as he always seems to be around this time of year, and there has been many calls in the media over the last few days which have claimed the German is no longer needed at the Emirates.
Unai Emery’s side didn’t need him at the weekend in the London derby against Tottenham, as they claimed a 4-2 victory over their arch-rivals to cement their credentials for more than just a top four spot.
And Jones has now claimed the Guunners no longer need the German and that no supporters ‘will shed a tear’ if he leaves.
“I’m not a fan of Ozil, so that’s a no-brainer for me,” said Jones on the TalkSport website.
“Ozil is a bit of a luxury player.
“If things are going well, it’s alight having Ozil in there pinging it about doing those one-twos.
“But if you need a player to get in there in the midfield and get stuck in, someone like Aaron Ramsey is much more important.”
Would Emery seriously consider selling Ozil in January?
Ozil is tHE type of player that can be brilliant one moment and then go missing for the next few months, as shown by his few good games earlier in the season, as they are the only few that he has actually done anything in.
He does not suit the new style of play that Emery wants to employ at the Emirates and if the right offer comes in for the German, Jones is right and many fans will not care too much if the Spaniard cashes in on Ozil before it is too late and he is worth prtetty much nothing.
