- Mesut Ozil has not played any Premier League game this season for Arsenal
- Paul Merson has told Mikel Arteta to settle with the former Real Madrid star
- Arsenal have not been impressive so far this term in the Premier League
Arsenal legend Paul Merson has stated emphatically that current gaffer of the Gunners Mikel Arteta should tender an apology to Mesut Ozil for freezing him out of the squad this term.
Mesut Ozil has been facing serious issues at the Emirates stadium this term as the German has not been allowed to play any game in the Premier League.
Arsenal have suffered from a lack of creativity and this was never more obvious than in last weekend's North London derby defeat to Spurs.
And since Arsenal's defeat against Tottenham in the Premier League, there have been questions over how Mikel Arteta can fix his problems ahead of their next game.
According to the report on Mirror, Paul Merson explained that Mikel Arteta's solution is for him to beg Mesut Ozil and return him to the first squad.
"Arsenal could still be playing Tottenham now and they wouldn’t have scored a goal.
"What can they do in January to fix it? Go and knock on Mesut Ozil’s door, say you’re sorry and you need him to play.
"Arsenal were atrocious against Spurs. They never looked like scoring. Ozil’s getting £350,000-a-week and sitting at home while his team can’t score."
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Arsene Wenger who guided Arsenal to three Premier League titles as well as seven FA Cups before he left after 22 remarkable years is being poached to return to the Emirates.
The manager stepped-down from his position in 2018 after his final years at the club were marred by protests and anger from the club’s supporters.
After leaving the club, Wenger reportedly vowed never to step foot at the Emirates stadium again but according to the Daily Mail, the club's CEO Vinai Venkatesham paid a courtesy visit to the 71-year-old.
He reportedly spoke with Wenger about the club’s plan to pay a special tribute to the former Gunners leader.
Wenger led Arsenal to three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups during his illustrious reign, but the Gunners went trophyless and finished sixth in the top flight in his final season.
