Chinese Super League Giants Set Sights On Mesut Ozil

Mesut Ozil: Unai Emery 'not thinking' about midfielder leaving the club

But Emery said he is still working alongside Mislintat as normal as Arsenal look to bolster their squad in the January transfer window.

"Then after, when I came back late from the World Cup, it was a bit different because the new manager came and you have to start again, prove to him that you are ready to play in this team".

Unai Emery is "not thinking about" the transfer talk surrounding Mesut Ozil, with the Arsenal boss more concerned with bringing greater consistency out of an enigmatic talent. We had two or three meetings and we are working normally.

Mesut Ozil signed a new contract at the Emirates previous year but now the playmaker has fallen out of favour under Unai Emery. I think that Giroud, in the first six months, played very often.

"He has helped us sometimes this year with good performances and others not good".

Ozil has fallen out of favour under Emery at Arsenal, prompting reports he could leave in January or at the end of the season. "He's had injuries and not been OK to play matches, but now after these two weeks maybe this Saturday will be okay for him".

Ozil, who has been linked with a possible move to AC Milan, was on the scoresheet the last time Arsenal beat Chelsea at home in the League - a 3-0 victory in September 2016.

Chelsea now sit in fourth place, six points ahead of fifth place Arsenal and Manchester United who are in sixth.

Ahead of the match, Emery insisted there is no issue over Ozil's form or lack of match time.

Emery said Ozil could face Chelsea on Saturday, adding: "I've spoken to him because I want consistency". I want every player to give the same work every day to be OK for every match.
