Mesut Ozil looks set to stay at Arsenal, with no interest elsewhere in taking the German midfielder off Unai Emerys hands.

Emery is hamstrung by a relatively miniscule £45million budget, and the north London club are open to offers for Ozil ahead of the transfer deadline in order to reduce the wage bill.
