MESUT OZIL, Mesut Ozil and Mesut Ozil is the talk of Arsenal right now with his future up in the air.
Read on for all this plus more gossip and the latest news from the Emirates.
EARN IT, MESUT
Ozil is Arsenal’s highest-paid player on a staggering £350,000 a week but Emery says that does not guarantee him a place in his starting XI.
‘WE NEED OZIL’
The midfielder was dropped for the club’s Carabao Cup defeat to Tottenham in midweek for “tactical reasons”.
HE MUS-T CHANGE
That is the view of Danny Higginbotham after Ozil was left out the Gunners squad which was eliminated from the League Cup on Wednesday by rivals Tottenham.
CAN’T STOP LOVING
The ex-Paris Saint-Germain manager oversaw a 22-game unbeaten run, with his side sitting just three points off fourth-placed Chelsea.
GUNNING FOR THEM
The French boss is calling in reinforcements and making Cesc Fabregas his top transfer target in January, while he hopes that Laurent Koscielny will solve his defensive woes.
The German has been linked with a move away from the Gunners, and a possible return to the Bernabeu could allow the Spanish midfielder to go the other way.
PLEASE TAKE HIM
GUNNERS may have to let Mesut Ozil leave on loan next month over fears that no club will take him on permanently.
The Arsenal midfielder is on £350,000-a-week and the North London side may have to release him on a temporary spell as Unai Emery believes he does not suit his style.
KEY TO SUCCESS
The Gunners only signed Leno in the summer, but his latest howler against Southampton could see Unai Emery move for the Costa Rican – who is now playing second fiddle to Thibaut Courtois.
The playmaker, 30, signed a £350,000-a-week deal in January to keep him at the club until 2021.
GUNNERS AND SPURS FINED
The Gunners bagged the points thanks to a 4-2 victory on December 2- but there were several flashpoints throughout.
‘ANTISEMITIC CHANT’ PROBED
The Mail claims he was confronted by a Jewish supporter during the Gunners’ 2-0 Carabao Cup quarter-final defeat to Tottenham after apparently chanting about “gassing Jewish people.”
ARSENAL FANS SLAM DAN
Spurs beat the Gunners 2-0 in the Carabao Cup quarter-final at the Emirates last night, thanks to goals from Son Heung-min and Dele Alli.
TIME UP FOR OZIL?
The attacking midfielder’s future at the Emirates is in huge doubt and Inter Milan are favourites to sign him in the next transfer window.
ROSE PRICKS GUNNERS
The England full-back was one of a number of Spurs players irritated by Arsenal’s celebrations following their 4-2 Premier League victory in the North London derby at the beginning of the month.
ARSENAL and the police are still searching for the idiot who threw a bottle at Dele Alli – as it was revealed there were seven arrests made at the Carabao Cup clash with Tottenham.
Officers from the Metropolitan police are working with the club to try to identify who among the crowd launched the plastic bottle at Alli.
