Premier League legend turned TV pundit Jamie Carragher has urged manager of Arsenal Arsene Wenger to allow contract rebel Mesut Ozil leave the club, and hand his role to Alex Iwobi.
Ozil is in the final 18 months of his contract and talks over an extension appears to have stalled due to variations in what he is demanding and what Arsenal are offering.
Iwobi dazzled in Ozil’s role against Crystal Palace with the German missing out due to a chest infection, and Carragher who has in the past criticize Ozil’s laid back attitude in games believes Iwobi’s style best suite the Gunners.
” Ozil has quality but he is certainly not properly suited to Arsenal’s swift style of play. His contract stand off is the perfect opportunity to cut ties with him like have always said, I don’t think Arsenal will miss him unlike Alexis Sanchez”, Owen said.
” That is what have been saying, Iwobi proved me right with his performance against Crystal Palace, Arsenal should let Ozil go”.
