Ozil ended rumours about his future last year by committing himself to the Gunners until the summer of 2021, with Wenger still at the helm.

But the midfielder has been left out of the team on a number of occasions this season, with Unai Emery blaming a mixture of minor injuries and poor performances from the Germany international.
