Mesut Ozil has not been included in a match day squad this season. The German midfielder’s Arsenal contract expires at the end of the season; Mikel Arteta: “We will see what happens in the transfer window and we will assess at the end of that.”
Mikel Arteta says he is unsure whether Mesut Ozil will return to the Arsenal squad in January but has suggested the club will not look to cut short the contracts of players that are not in his plans.
Ozil and Sokratis Papastathopoulos were not registered by the Gunners’ for the first half of the Premier League season and are yet to be included in a matchday squad in any competition.
