Arsenal got back to winning ways against Cardiff City in the Premier League on Tuesday. It was a much-needed win after a disappointing loss to Manchester United in the FA Cup.
But fans were quick to pick up on something that happened during the match. Mesut Ozil who started and captained the team was substituted during the game.
What he did later had the Arsenal fans worried that he was waving the fans goodbye before leaving the club. With the Gunners trying to pull off few loan deals before the deadline, a lot of them feel that this is the last time they will be seeing the German play.
Here are some of the best reactions:
Ozil gets 75mins on his premier league return and waves to the crowd when leaving the pitch. Could he be part of any Arsenal transfers happening within the next 2 days

There were earlier suggestions from Star Sport(via Daily Star) that for Arsenal to sign Perisic, Inter Milan would want Ozil to complete the deal. If this is really going to happen, then it would mean that the German was indeed saying goodbye to the fans.
What could make this situation even more interesting is that as per Telegraph, Arsenal are looking at Carrasco who is playing in China at the moment. The Belgian currently is on the books of Dalian Yifang and was already touted to be a target for the Gunners but the emergence of the Perisic rumors put a new spin on this deal happening.
Ozil could be used as a makeweight in either deal but there is no indication as to whether this is actually going to happen or not. There is not much time left in the transfer window so we will be getting an answer sooner rather than later.
Whatever the situation may be, the truth is that the German playmaker is an integral part of the team at the moment. If Ozil was to leave the Gunners, it will leave quite an impact on the fight to get back into the Champions League.
