Iwobi: Sanchez, Ozil Departure Will Set Arsenal Back

Iwobi: Sanchez, Ozil Departure Will Set Arsenal Back

Coquelin suffered a hamstring injury against League One side Doncaster Rovers in the Carabao Cup back in September, while a knee injury has kept Ozil out of the team of late. Missing just three games, the German averaged 4.27 chances created per 90 minutes with 0.56 per 90 resulting in a goal for his team.

His switch to north London in 2013 was supposed to be a turning point for the club, a truly world class star arriving to reverse the previous losses of Robin van Persie, Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri.

Ozil has been out of form this season and at the moment, he is out injured.

He is now in the a year ago of his contract with the Gunners and it seems likely that he will look for a fresh challenge come the summer.

'I think he's testing Wenger more than any other player has, ' Keown told BBC Radio 5 Live.

In fact, Ozil didn't even make the bench as the Germany worldwide was sidelined with a knee problem, although some former Arsenal players such as Ian Wright have questioned the World Cup winner's injury. "He's got that combination of creativity and tactical awareness that he likes", Castles said, per Express. But Ozil, I think he's downed tools, he wants to go and it's going to get messy'.

As far as the transfers are concerned, Mourinho strengthened his defense, midfield and the strike-force department in the summer transfer window but did not lure any attacking midfielder.

Contract negotiations resumed between both Arsenal and Mesut Ozil at the start of the season, but while the German worldwide is certainly a valuable player, and they wouldn't want to lose him for free.

"Where he does want to recruit is in a faster wide player which isn't Ozil's forte".

The duo are both out of contract at the end of the current campaign and have shown no signs of agreeing fresh terms at the Emirates Stadium.
