“He has pace, power, technical ability, and he is brilliant.

Arsenal misfit Mesut Ozil is facing an uncertain future at the Emirates Stadium after Mikel Arteta snubbed the German for the win over Leicester City in the Carabao Cup.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has admitted it is hard for outcast Mesut Ozil to barge his way into his plans at present.

The Gunners’ top earner continues to pocket a hefty wage, despite not featuring at all since football restarted.

Ozil was left out completely as Arsenal beat Leicester 2-0 at the King Power Stadium, despite a host of fringe players making the team.

And Arteta says he must pick the players in the best shape, hinting Ozil will struggle to get back into the starting XI at the Emirates.

“The players that we are changing that we are using,” he said after victory.

It is very difficult for Mesut and some of them to make the squad.

“It’s difficult for others that weren’t involved in the Premier League.

“I understand [the questions] but I have to do my job as straight as possible. I select the players in the best condition.”

Speaking over the summer, Ozil’s agent Dr Erkut Sogut admitted his client wasn’t heading for the exit

I don’t think Mesut will leave before the summer of 2021,” he told reporters.

“He’s got an ongoing contract that hasn’t changed. He will stay with Arsenal.

“When his deal is up, I estimate there is a ninety percent chance he will leave Arsenal.

“Maybe Asia, America, Turkey? Who knows.”
