MESUT OZIL is locked into an Arsenal stand-off with Unai Emery and neither man is prepared to back down. Emery has made it clear that Ozil is not part of his plans and that he wants the former German international to leave at the end of the season. Mesut Ozil joined the Gunners from Real Madrid in 2013 But Ozil, 30, has no intention of being forced out of the club and is ready to dig his heels in for another two years if necessary. French champions Paris Saint-Germain tried to sign him on loan last month to fill in for their injured Brazilian superstar Neymar for the rest of the season. But while Arsenal were open to PSG’s approach, Ozil made it clear that he has no intention of going anywhere on loan. He is happy living in London and is not prepared to leave at the first offer just to help Arsenal get him off the payroll. Unai Emery is keen to get Mesut Ozil’s huge wages off the Arsenal payroll He will consider a move to a major European club in the summer but only if the financial terms are right and has no interested in going to China. And now the club’s £350,000-a-week highest earner believes he is starting to win the fans’ backing in his escalating dispute with the manager. Ozil has started just one of Arsenal’s last ten games and didn’t even make the squad for Thursday’s humiliating Europa League defeat by BATE Borisov. Emery is making no attempt to hide his frustration with a player who has regularly declared himself unavailable due to various viruses, back spasms and niggles with his knee. [article-rail-topic title=”latest arsenal news” term_id=”880″ posts_number=”12″ /] Mesut Ozil has scored four goals for the Gunners this season Ozil has now missed more than 100 games during his six seasons at Arsenal without ever suffering a serious injury. But even when he is fit and in full training, he is not selected for the games which really matter against the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City. The manager now refuses to even discuss Ozil’s situation and is becoming increasingly irritated by so much focus being given to someone who is not even playing. Yet Ozil is determined to do everything by the book and has taken to posting regular messages on social media declaring his commitment and support for the team. Mesut Ozil has fallen out of favour under the management of Unai Emery Even though he was 1,400 miles away from Thursday’s 1-0 defeat in Borisov, Ozil tweeted: “Not the result we wanted, but we can still do it in the second leg and reach the next round. “Let’s bounce back at the Emirates especially for our fans.” It was a message which drew more than 1,500 supportive replies from supporters and now the pressure is on Emery to recall his midfield star for Thursday’s crucial return leg. Arsenal Invincible Martin Keown insists that something has to give at his former club and says: “The situation is becoming embarrassing. Gunners veteran Martin Keown admitted Mesut Ozil has not been consistent “Is he injured? Is he ill? We don’t really know. To miss 100 matches is questionable but only the player really knows if he’s really injured or not. “A player has to be available to give consistency and Ozil hasn’t been able to give either of those things to the team.” The dilemma for Arsenal is that none of the handful of clubs who can afford to match Ozil’s £18million-a-year contract want to buy him. Yet Arsenal are not prepared to allow him to leave for nothing after fighting so hard to get him to sign a new contract last January. And it is clear that they now bitterly regret following the advice of Arsene Wenger and Ivan Gazidis in acceding to Ozil’s demands.

Arsenal star Mesut Ozil has been a hot topic of debate yet again this season amid his ongoing absence from Unai Emery’s side. While the German has officially been sidelined with back and knee problems, there has been fierce speculation a negative relationship with Emery has been the real reason. Mesut Ozil latest: Is Arsenal star fit? Why has been out? Will he face Chelsea? There have been rumours that Ozil, who was made the club’s highest paid player last January, could leave the Emirates soon. But Emery has confirmed the 30-year-old should be back in contention to face Chelsea in Saturday’s Premier League clash. The Arsenal boss has had to field questions about the playmaker once again. And here’s every word Emery had to say about Ozil at his press-conference ahead of this weekend’s top flight match in north London, which is live on talkSPORT on Saturday evening. [iframe src=”https%3A%2F%2Fcdn2.talksport.com%2Ftscdn%2Ftalksport%2Fembed_player%2Ftalksport_1.html” height=”125″ /] [article-rail-section title=”Latest Premier League News” posts_category=”232″ posts_number=”10″ query_type=”recent” /] On whether Ozil is getting married “Yes, I spoke with him in the summer and he said he is going to get married this year – I think at the end of the season. But his private life is his life. “I’ve also spoke to him because I want consistency. He’s had some injuries and these injuries mean that sometimes he is okay and sometimes he isn’t okay. I want every player to give the same work everyday to be okay for every match. With Mesut it’s the same. “He didn’t play the last matches but to me he’s just like any other player. This Saturday he can be with us if he’s okay.” On Ozil’s chances of playing at the weekend “Now? He’s training consistently with his work over the past two weeks and I think he can be.” Arsenal boss Unai Emery could offload Mesut Ozil soon On whether the situation with Ozil is frustrating “I like to create the same spirit for all, and that spirit is every players gets and gives consistent work and moments with their performances but it’s not easy. Sometimes you are better and sometimes you are worse. “I’m working with every player in the same way. The most important thing for me is how he can help us and how every player can help us with their consistency.” On whether he could leave in January “I’m not thinking about that. I’m thinking about how he can help us this year with good performances. He’s had injuries and not been okay to play matches, but now after these two weeks maybe this Saturday will be okay for him.” Arsenal star Mesut Ozil has been missing in recent weeks Mesut Ozil: Why has he been out? Ozil has only played in four of Arsenal’s last 14 fixtures in all competitions. He missed a stretch of games at the end of November and beginning of December due to back trouble and has then been out since Boxing Day with a knee problem. But rumours have swirled that Ozil’s relationship with Emery has also played a part in his absence. There has been speculation the Spaniard is not happy with his midfielder’s work rate and desire and is actively looking to get rid of him in the near future. It has also been claimed that Ozil’s computer game habits may be affecting his performances with reports he spends up to five hours per day playing his console. Arsenal star Mesut Ozil could face Chelsea this weekend Mesut Ozil: Will he face Chelsea? As Emery commented, Ozil should be fit to return to action in Saturday’s Premier League London derby with Chelsea. Arsenal were beaten at West Ham last weekend, with Ozil not included in the matchday squad at the London Stadium. The Gunners do not currently have many injury concerns in midfield so it remains to be seen if Emery will decided to bring Ozil back into his starting line-up.

UNAI EMERY fears Laurent Koscielny will need nursing through the rest of the season. The Arsenal skipper, 33, is available for today’s trip to West Ham after a late withdrawal before last Saturday’s FA Cup win at Blackpool. Laurent Koscielny may be back after a lengthy spell on the sidelines but needs to be managed carefully Unai Emery believes his captain will struggle to play more than once per week But the Frenchman has struggled to cope with Arsenal’s punishing schedule after his long-term Achilles injury. Gooners boss Emery admits Koscielny is struggling to play more than one game a week. He said: “We pushed him to play after his injuries because we needed him as other players were not available. “It was not easy for him to play three matches in one week.

He has completed the full 90 minutes just twice but is expected to start when Arsenal travel to the London Stadium for the lunchtime kick-off.
