Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to discuss Mesut Özil’s omission from 25-man premier league squad announced yesterday.

The 32-year-old has not featured for the Gunners since a Premier League game against West Ham on March 7 and was left out of their Europa League squad this month.  

The decision means the club’s highest-paid player, who earns £350,000 ($453,000) a week, will not be able to play again for Arsenal until February at the earliest.

The likelihood is that the German has now played his final ever game for the club where he has spent the past seven years following his move from Real Madrid in 2013.

He has not even made a matchday squad this season, even in the early stages of the Carabao Cup when Arteta has rung the changes.

When quizzed on the playmaker’s absence after the 2-0 win at Leicester last month, the Arsenal boss said: “The team is evolving, you can see the level they are achieving. This is where we are at the moment. We want to evolve more and play better and compete better.

“You can see that the players we are changing, we are using, it’s very difficult every week not just for Mesut but for some other players as well to make the squad. Every week we try to pick the right players.

“It’s difficult for others as well that aren’t involved in the Premier League and didn’t play tonight either. We have a squad of 26, 27 players at the moment and we can’t give playing time to all of them. I understand and I respect your questions but I have to try to do my job as fair as possible. I try to select the players that are, in my opinion, in better condition.”

It is rumoured that his statements on the Chinese persecution over Uighur muslims and calling for solidarity is the mein reason behind the continuos rejection from the team.

Anyway fans are outrageous in social media especially in twitter and Instagram on this new developments which will end Ozil’s career in Arsenal.
