Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta’s problem with Mesut Ozil, is his inability to play on the flanks, consistent with Goal.
Arteta decided at the beginning of this season to go away Ozil out of his Premier League and Europa League squads.
The Gunners are struggling without the German, who is their best-paid player, earning a mouthwatering £350,000-a-week.
Arsenal is crying out for an ingenious outlet, and it seems absurd that Arteta would go away Ozil out of his plans without a back-up.
The club was linked with Philippe Coutinho within the summer transfer window, and Arteta was keen to bring the Brazilian to London.
But Coutinho had just won the Champions League on loan at Bayern Munich, and Barcelona decided early within the summer they wanted to offer the midfielder a second chance.
Arteta’s inability to urge Coutinho meant Arsenal were always getting to be without an ingenious player if the Spaniard decided to freeze Ozil.
He however cursed with his decision, as he wanted a midfielder with the power to play during several roles.
