Arsenal have been boosted by the return of ex-Germany international Mesut Ozil.

The playmaker who is very social media friendly took to Instagram to post sessions of his work out in the gym.

Ozil has been in and out of the Gunners squad many times this season due to injuries. He failed to make the Arsenal squad that knocked out Blackpool from the FA Cup but it appears that he will make the team that will take on West Ham in the Premier League this weekend.

Ozil has not played a game for Arsenal since our 1-1 draw with Brighton and Hove Albion on boxing day, a  game in which he was subbed off at half time.

He has missed the last three games for us but his return has proved a massive boost to Arsenal, who currently have a thin squad.

Here is a picture in shared on Wednesday.

Arsenal have up to six of their injured players return to full training. Meanwhile, Mkhitaryan is expected back in February while Holding and Welbeck are recovering after undergoing surgeries.
