Mesut Ozil & Arsenal
Will Mesut Ozil still be at Arsenal at the start of next season?
And do Arsenal fans even want him to remain at their club?
Ozil recently celebrated his fourth year anniversary as a Gooner, however recent seasons have seen the playmaker receive a lot of flak.
He’s often criticised for going missing and not stamping his authority on games. Ozil never shows up when Arsenal need him most.
However, Ozil showed his passion for Arsenal this week on social media. Away on international duty with Germany, Ozil attacked his haters.
Moreover, he hit back calling on many of Arsenal’s biggest critics, ex players and pundits, to get behind the team and show their support.

Mesut Ozil & Germany
While Ozil may underwhelm for Arsenal, he’s been in excellent form during the current international break.
Germany have picked up two wins against the Czech Republic and Norway, and Ozil has been impressive in both matches.
Against the Czechs last week, Germany won 2-1 in Prague.
In his 86th international match for Die Mannschaft, Ozil chalked up his 38th assist as he teed up Timo Werner after just four minutes.
Overall, Ozil’s passing, movement and vision were excellent as he reveled in being the key man for Germany’s attacks.
On Monday night, Germany were even more impressive in a 6-0 home win over Norway.
Mesut Ozil got things started with his first Germany goal for over a year.
The Arsenal man picked the ball up deep and worked it to the left-hand side. He allowed his teammates to take over creative duties for a time before sweeping home Jonas Hector’s cutback from the left.
Ozil then got better as the game progressed. Seven minutes after scoring the Arsenal star set up Julian Draxler for Germany’s second.
Ozil was also heavily involved in Germany’s fourth of the game, scored by Werner.
Overall, Ozil put in one of his best performances in recent times against Norway. His passing and footwork were close to perfection as he reminded onlookers how good he can be.
