His last professional goal dates back to February 2020 coming when Arsenal thrashed Newcastle 4-0 at the Emirates Stadium.

During his time in England, the Germain star made the headlines due to his creative skills. But on the flip side, he occasionally received subtle social media shots and behind the scenes fall-outs.

Surprisingly the Gunners failed to register him for their 25-man Premier League squad at the beginning of the 2020/21 season, prompting the playmaker to imply a lack of loyalty on Arsenal's behalf via social media.

Though Ozil's move to Fenerbahce was originally greeted with optimism from the player himself and fans alike, it quickly turned into something of a nightmare.
