This season will surely be a season to forget for Arsene Wenger or a season he will not forget in a hurry.
From media backlash, being booed by the fans, missing a golden chance to win the league, disappointing results on the pitch to players’ attitude, the Frenchman has more than enough to battle with.
Both Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott have been linked with Manchester City. While the former is reportedly keen on a reunion with his former boss, Pep Guardiola who comes in as the Sky Blues new manager this summer, the Spainard wants to add Walcott to the number of home grown
players to the club.
The midfield trio of Captain Mikel Arteta, Tomas Rosicky and Mathieu Flamini are expected to leave the Emirates at the end of this current campaign. In the light of this, Arsenal record signing Mesut Ozil has continued to cast doubt over his future at the club.
The German international has delayed talk over his future till end of the season and has been linked many times with Spanish giants Barcelona.
Recent statements credited to the World Cup winner would have left the fans pondering whether he will still be at the club next season or not. Despite insisting on being happy at the club, the 27-year-old has left the door opened for a possible exit.
According to Bleacher report via French magazine Surface, Ozil said: “In the future you can never know in football.” “I am under contract with Arsenal and I am very happy to be here now.”
“I do not think about the future, I just think my current situation. I have goals for Arsenal.”
The German still has two years left on his current contract and Wenger is confident both him and Sanchez would extend their stay at the club.
Ozil moved to the Emirates in 2013 for £42.5 million from Real Madrid. It is believed Ozil is yet to fully adapt to the possessing style of the club as against the counter-attacking which seems move suitable to him. He has provided 18 league assists this season.
