Ozil has been left out of Gunners’ games since the start of the season as Mikel Arteta hints on possible come back by the end of the January transfer window when players must have left Arsenal
The German is remarkably noted in the squad for his ability to create opportunities and provide assist as that was same qualities he called out Arsenal youngster for, following their 4-0 victory at Hawthorns on Saturday night.
Arsenal extended their win streak to 3 with Kieran Tierney opening the score line seconds after he was seen driving into West Bromwich’s 18-yard box, beating Darnell Furlong twice before edging closer into the box to find the wide end of the goal post.
Alexander Lacazette sealed the win with a brace within 4 minutes as Kieran Tierney provided him the assist after Bukayo Saka’s Arsenal second goal that was facilitated by Emile Smith Rowe.
Rowe after the game was immediately called out by Ozil as he was also seen displaying similar body languages as that of the 32-year-old.
Quoting from Ozil’s twitter account after the win, “Nice game my boys! 🔥Great spirit – 3 wins in a row ❤👏 Team looks good with a No10 like Emile Smith Rowe – the difference maker 💪 #YaGunnersYa #COYG #WBAARS
Emile Smith Rowe proved he could take on Mesut’s place should the former Madridista part ways with the North London side on the expiration of his contract.
Arsenal have over the past games missed that creativity ability in the center as many fans called for Ozil to be brought back into the squad as soon as possible.
With Ozil’s comment on the 20-year-old, it’s clear Ozil is pinpointing Smith can take on his place should he finally leave the club.
Meanwhile, following statements from Mikel Arteta before the game yesterday, it’s likely Ozil could be spending more time with the club.
Speaking to reporters, Arteta said; “We will see what happens in the transfer window and we will assess that at the end.”
