Mesut Ozil future

Mesut Ozil in action for Arsenal on November 3, 2018

Mesut Ozil's future at Arsenal is back under the microscope having seemingly fallen out of favour with manager Unai Emery.

Ozil is just one year into a three-and-a-half-year contract which sees him earn a reported £350,000 per week - comfortably more than anyone else in the squad.

However, he has been in and out of the team under Emery, with form and fitness both playing a part in limiting his role.

The likes of Juventus, Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid have been credited with an interest in the German.
