Arsenal outcast Mesut Ozil is confident that he can secure a move to another top club next summer.
Ozil has not played a competitive game for the Gunners since March. Mikel Arteta has decided to exclude the midfielder from his Premier League and Europa League squads for the first half of the season.
As The Mirror reports, Ozil is unlikely to leave Arsenal in January despite his lack of playing time as his £ 350,000-a-week contract includes loyalty rewards for his stay until the contract expires next summer.

Arsenal have the option to register Ozil in February but it is becoming increasingly clear that his time at the club is nearing the end.
The 32-year-old believes that because of his quality and experience, there is still great interest in him.

Arsenal have only scored ten Premier League goals this season and some fans have called for Ozil to be reinstated.
Ozil played a prominent role after Arteta was appointed midway through last season but later fell out of favor.
Moving to an Italian or French club is an option for Ozil and there have also been suggestions that his legacy would allow him to move to a Turkish side.
