Arsenal offered £5m for Mesut Ozil but German snubs Saudi Arabia move with Al-Nassr
ARSENAL reportedly received a £5million bid for Mesut Ozil from Al-Nassr.
The £350,000-per-week midfielder, 31, has not played for Mikel Arteta's side since March 7.
According to Tyc Sports, the Saudi Arabian side want to sign Ozil on a two-year deal.
But Ozil has made it clear that he is NOT prepared to accept the offer from Al-Nassr.
He does not want to move to Asia despite being frozen out of Arsenal's squad.

The North London club are set to re-open talks to rip up his £350,000-per-week contract in January.
But a major stumbling block is that Ozil is believed to want the full £13m left on his deal in order to walk away.
Reports claim he is 'likely' to seal a transfer to an MLS side.
But former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has insisted Arteta can still get the best out of him.
Ozil, who joined from Real Madrid for £42.5m seven years ago, has not featured for Arsenal this season.
The 31-year-old chipped in with one goal in 18 Premier League games last term.
But he has even failed to make the cut for Arsenal's 25-man Europa League squad.
Speaking about his future to The Athletic, he said: "Things have been difficult but I love Arsenal.
"I'll decide when I go, not other people. I'll give everything I have for this club."
