Unai Emery on Mesut Ozil
Prior to facing off with Standard Liege, Unai Emery held his pre-match press conference on Thursday.
Emery discussed a number of things, including whether or not Kieran Tierney and Hector Bellerin could play a role on Thursday, which you can read about here.
Another topic on the agenda at the press conference was Mesut Ozil.
Ozil has played just twice in the 2019/20 campaign for Arsenal, with only one of those appearances having come in the Premier League.
The Daily Mail also recently ran a story about Ozil, claiming that the north London outfit are ready to let the German leave on loan in January.
Emery then spoke about the prospect of Ozil going out on loan in January, giving this rather vague statement:
“He’s our player now.” As quoted by Arsenal’s official website.
