Mesut Ozil has sent a message to Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta.
The Gunners midfielder continues to be frozen out in what is the final year of his lucrative contract.
Ozil hasn’t played since March with the Arsenal hierarchy unhappy with the player’s £350,000-per-week contract and the German’s unwillingness to leave during the summer window.
The player himself is understood to be keen to work his way back into Arteta’s plans, if indeed that is possible, pictured regularly smiling and joking during Arsenal training.
Ozil is pretty active on social media, too, and his latest tweet may just be a message to his Gunners boss.

A fan account posted a video clip of Ozil’s performances under Arteta perhaps in hope to prove why the German midfielder should be involved this season.

And Ozil himself quote retweeted the tweet, saying “#Startof2020, #throwback #M10 #YaGunnersYa”
Arteta, however, may be restricted in what he can do with most believing the decisions to omit Ozil on a regular basis come from the board and not the Spanish boss.
Ozil has been with Arsenal since 2013 and barring a severe pay cut, it seems unlikely he will still be at the club beyond next summer when his current contract is set to expire.
