It’s unofficial but it’s said that Mesut Ozil has reluctantly told his agent that he can’t remain in North London for the remainder of his contract. Lacking in serious amount of game time since the appointment of Emery, Ozil is reportedly thinking of leaving the Emirates.
Emery has finally convinced the German playmaker that there is no place for him in the morphing Arsenal squad and has underlined his position by not including him in any of his recent squads.
Ozil is said to be furious and feels that his treatment at the hands of Emery has been grossly unfair and completely embarrassing. This latest episode in the ongoing saga of conflict between the highly paid Ozil and his new coach is not exactly a surprise and as

When these relationships breakdown it’s never pretty but this is probably as bad an example as Conte/Costa which was a gunslingers confrontation.
Ozil has so far played little part in Arsenal’s hit and miss season this far but one had to agree that Cabellos has shown more, even bagging a goal against Standard Liege.
He’s shown more appetite and ambition reflected in the words of Emery, with a feverish press looking for answers about his exclusion, Emery said,
“Really I am thinking every time to decide the best players for each match and the best player for the squad to play and [who will] help us, Emery said after the win over Standard Liege. When I decide he’s not in the squad it’s because another player deserves it more.”
This has no doubt added considerable fuel to the fire with Ozil already livid at his treatment, feeling he has shown enough in training to merit a start.
The battle lines have been drawn and it now appears that Ozil will use the exit door, depending on offers in January and his agent is thought to be actively searching for a new club.
