Arsenal haven’t had a consistent Mesut Ozil since they signed him, and that was four years ago. And yet he is still going to be entering uncharted territory.
There aren’t any Arsenal players that divide opinion quite like Mesut Ozil. Even in the midst of a 15 match unbeaten run, there are questions regarding how viable of an option he is in the long-term, despite his new assertion that he could remain a Gunner until he retires.
Barring Leicester City, he hasn’t been at his best at all this year under Unai Emery, and there’s no hiding from that fact. And even though we are used to the inconsistencies, what we aren’t used to is what is coming against Wolverhampton. Ozil is about to go somewhere he has never gone before with his gameplay.
