Arsenal to investigate academy coach Mark Arber over alleged Mesut Ozil betting

Arsenal confirm that they are investigating whether academy coach Mark Arber breached rules by placing a bet on the impending arrival of Mesut Ozil.

Arsenal have confirmed that they have launched an investigation into claims that academy coach Mark Arber placed a bet on the signing of new midfielder Mesut Ozil.

The former Dagenham & Redbridge defender suggested that he was going to bet money on the German international joining the Gunners on deadline day by writing on Twitter: "Lovely bit of 14-1 Mesut."

Ozil, who is currently on international duty, eventually completed his switch from Real Madrid to the Emirates Stadium for a club-record £42.5m fee.

"We take this very seriously," London 24 quotes an Arsenal spokesman as saying. "All Arsenal employees and workers are well aware of their responsibilities in this respect and we are looking into this as a matter of urgency."

If found guilty by the club, Arber could be in breach of the Football Association's betting rules.
