Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has further thrown his Arsenal future into deeper clouds of doubts.
The German midfielder and former Real Madrid star has been a stumbling figure on the pitch for the Gunners this campaign and was immediately dropped out of the line-up that clashed with London rivals Tottenham on Wednesday night.
Unai Emery is tinkering his options at the middle of the park in Arsenaal, but it is understood he is still interested in playing Ozil in the attacking third.
According to club sources, Emery knows Ozil has got a big load of talent and his kind of talent could help Arsenal grapple a top four finish in the Premier League.
However the Spaniard’s decision to make Ozil sit the London derby defeat to Tottenham out, was based on tactical reasons.
Ozil is not his best self on the pitch and Emery has strongly showed that he will not tolerate his feebleness.
If Ozil fails to impress Emery, chances are that he could be shipped out on loan. It is on the Gunners cards and could happen next year.
But if that doesn’t work out, the Gunners could lay him off for a cut-rate fee to interested suitors.
