Arsenal are thinking of some departures from the squad and German players Shkodran Mustafi and Mesut Ozil appear to be on the road.
The London club have appointed Spaniard Mikel Arteta a few days ago as head of the technical staff instead of the dismissed Unai Emery.
Arteta has now begun plans to rebuild his Arsenal and, in addition to approaching, he is also expected to make some significant departures.
The duo have long been linked with a move away from north London, and can finally make their move.
Ozil is keenly interested in the big Turkish clubs, with Fenerbahce appearing to be in the ‘pole position’.
For the Albanian defender the possible destination seems Serie A or Bundesliga.
