Mesut Ozil has given Arsenal fans hopes that he will be back on the pitch soon after uploading a video on Instagram in which the German midfielder is seen working hard in the gym in a bid to get his fitness up to speed.

Ozil is currently recuperating from a knee injury and has not played since Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Bournemouth on September 25.


The 28-year-old, who is in the last year of his contract, is said to be considering a move to arch-rivals Manchester United and will be eligible to sign a pre-contract with them once the winter transfer window opens on January 1, 2018.

Arsenal, after a disastrous start, have recovered to win three of their last four games and are currently in fifth place with 13 points, level with defending champions Chelsea.

Their UEFA Europa League campaign has begun on an encouraging note, with the Gunners topping the group after winning both their games despite fielding a side mostly consisting of fringe players and youth-team prospects.

Seeing their side go unbeaten for the past four games has led many fans to question whether Ozil is indispensable to the club or not.

In the fast-paced Premier League, the silky midfielder is seen as luxury player by most but it remains to be seen whether the German will risk the wrath of fans by moving to a hated rival like Manchester United.
