Ozil has endured a rocky time in recent months at the Emirates Stadium, having started life in the Premier League superbly – with his current performances drawing deep criticism and frustration from fans and pundits.
He is currently side lined with a knee problem but this has not stopped City’s reported interest.
They are willing to offer £32m for the Germany World Cup winner and should Arsenal cash in on their prized but bewildered asset, it would represent a £10.5m loss on the player.
The 26-year-old had been drawing interest from giants Bayern Munich who were weighing up a £30m bid to take the player back to Germany but it appears City are willing to trump the bid.
It remains to be seen if Wenger will want to let Ozil go after fiercely defending him from his critics.
If Ozil were to leave for the Etihad h would not be the first player to do so from the Gunners – the likes of Samir Nasri, Gael Clichy and Bacary Sagna have all traded red for blue in recent years.
