Arsenal fans want Mesut Ozil to be registered in January after latest loss
Arsenal were beaten by fierce rivals Tottenham yesterday and after the game supporters called for Mesut Ozil to be included in the squad when the registration window reopens.
The 32-year-old playmaker was left out of Arsenal’s squads for both the Premier League and Europa League at the start of the season.
Ozil can’t be reinstated until January at the earliest, although it’s fair to say the Gunners are struggling for a creative spark.
The 92-cap former Germany international might not be the answer but it seems reasonable to suggest that he’d be a good option from the bench.
Ozil is paid £350,000-a-week by the Gunners and it does seem perhaps bizarre that he’s not even been registered by Mikel Arteta.
Arsenal signed the maestro in 2013 and in 254 appearances for the Gunners he has scored 44 goals and registered 77 assists.
Some supporters have been pretty critical over Ozil’s attitude prior to Arteta leaving him out.
With that in mind, it remains to be seen whether or not the Spanish manager will back down and reinstate Ozil for the second half of the campaign.
The FA Cup holders are languishing in 15th place in the Premier League and certainly, something needs to change.
After yesterday supporters took to Twitter to question whether not Ozil could do a job.
Here is what Arsenal supporters were saying.
Arteta has said so many times it was his decision to leave mesut out. It’s in him and him alone.

Our play summed up.
No one in between the lines ready to receive. So wide areas over load. No one to attack crosses. Wrong profiles everywhere. https://t.co/AiMI609v1s

That is the biggest problem. There is no one to receive the ball, only available players are defenders so everyone passes backwards.

Doesn’t matter what you think of Ozil, or whether you think he’d make a difference or not… to take the utterly stupid risk of leaving him out of all squads is stupid and reckless.

I’ve been saying this since he was dropped from the squad. Club needs to swallow pride and add him back in the next window.
