Mesut Ozil’s Arsenal career is over, claims Ian Wright

first_imgAdvertisement Mesut Ozil’s Arsenal career is over, claims Ian Wright Comment Mesut Ozil hasn’t featured for the club since the Premier League season resumed (Picture: Getty)Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes Mesut Ozil’s career at the club is over whether he is sold this summer or not.Ozil is yet to play a single minute for the Gunners since the Premier League season resumed and he was left out entirely for Arsenal’s 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa on Tuesday night.The German signed a new £350,000-a-week deal at the club in 2018 and he still has two years to run on that deal.Few clubs in the world could afford to match that salary, particularly as Ozil is 31 and past his peak.ADVERTISEMENTHowever, with little sign of a comeback on the cards at the Emirates, Wright believes Ozil’s time at the club is over whether he stays or goes this summer. Wright doesn’t expect to see Ozil in an Arsenal shirt again (Picture: Getty)‘I think that he’s gone,’ Wright told Premier League Productions.AdvertisementAdvertisement‘It’s all about attitude. The thing is when you look at Dani Ceballos he had an attitude problem, Mikel turned him round and now he’s in the team. Matteo Guendouzi – they’re talking about him having a problem – he’s not in the team. ‘Mikel’s given people the opportunity to get into the team if their attitude is right but at the minute their attitude is not right. ‘Arsenal need him [Ozil] of course but I believe that he’s somebody that’s gone from Arsenal whether he stays or Mikel gets rid of him, we’re not going to see much of him.’More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityArsenal’s defeat at Villa Park means the highest the club can finish this term is eighth, which would be their lowest finish since 1995.The loss means Arsenal can no longer qualify for the Europa League via their league position, though victory in the FA Cup final against Chelsea would provide another route into the competition.
