Premier League is the strongest league in the world. We do not want to say that every person on this planet would agree with that statement. Others would say that La Ligue is the strongest one because of Real Madrid, Barcelona, and other strong teams. However, many insights show how powerful the entire Premier League is.
In the last couple of years, the battle for the title was not so tough. In the last 2 or 3 years, it seemed that only two teams had the chance to become champions. Logically, we are talking here about Manchester City and Liverpool. However, this year, the league unexpectedly started. Everton plays like never before thanks to good transfer politics and the instructions that Carlo Ancelotti gives to his players. Aston Villa also plays incredibly beautiful football. It doesn’t need to surprise us why they managed to score 7 goals against the champion.
Still, there is one strong team that does not manage to achieve some huge goals in the previous years. Arsenal is a club with a long tradition and a big number of titles. Of course, they still haven’t managed to win the Champions League title. In the last couple of years, they have not even managed to qualify for that competition.
Arsen Wenger left Arsenal 2 years ago, and many things have changed in the meantime. The owners of the club tried to improve the quality of the club with different coaches. Currently, it seems that Mikel Arteta is not doing a bad job. They also improved their squad with some amazing players. For instance, Willian came this year and managed to improve the quality of Arsenal’s games. We will see soon if that is going to be enough for Arsenal to at least qualify for Champions League.
However, there is one player that many people forgot about. Mesut Ozil is one of Arsenal’s most talented players ever. Unfortunately, it seems that the relationships between Ozil and the club are not good. That is the reason why we want to analyze if Mesut Ozil still has a future at Arsenal.
The Current Situation
A few days ago, Arsenal named the 25-man squad list for the Premier League. Everyone expected that Mesut Ozil’s name will be on that list. Of course, no one expected he would regularly be in the starting eleven. However, most of the Arsenal fans believed he would at least be on the bench and get the opportunity to play sometimes. Unfortunately for the German player, something like that didn’t happen. Despite Premier League, he has also been left off the Europa League squad.
So, Does He Still Have a Future at Arsenal?
There is no reason to give a long answer to that question. When you analyze the current situation, you will clearly see that Mesut Ozil does not have a future at Arsenal. He is currently in the last year of his contract, and we are sure that Arsenal won’t offer him another one. Despite that, even if they do offer him a new contact, there are minimal chances that Mesut Ozil would sign it.
Where Will Mesut Ozil Play Next?
That is a question that requires in-depth analysis. First of all, we should all regularly follow the Premier League news to potentially find the answer. There are websites like casinous where you can play the games with the football theme. On the other hand there are websites that deal with the football related news such as goal.com. They analyzed the reason why Arsenal need to let go of Mesut Ozil this January. However, we are not even sure when he will exactly leave the club. It depends a lot on his goals and character. A good example of a player that stays in the same club even when he is not playing is Bale. He simply enjoyed his time playing golf and video games while his team was leading the battle in different fields.
After many years of inactive playing, he went back to Tottenham, and he will probably be an active participant in starting eleven.
On the other hand, the future of Mesut Ozil is hard to predict. Once again, his next club depends on the plans that he has. Before everything, we should remind you that he is 32 years old. Of course, we do not want to say that he is too old for playing. However, establishing a strong contract in those years is difficult (except if you are Cristiano Ronaldo).
So, two options may happen. One option is that he continues to play in Europe for less money. Italian clubs managed to attract many players from the Premier League. For instance, Romero Lukaku, Eriksen, and Sanchez, and many other players went to Inter. If you are actively following the transfer market, then you know very well how many players went from Premier League to Seria A. Many Italian teams will gladly accept to pay for the skills and talents that Mesut Ozil has.
However, if Ozil decides on chasing strong offers and earning more money, staying in Europe probably won’t be his decision. Many clubs from China and America would want to see Mesut Ozil in their team. Logically, these leagues try to attract old players with expensive offers. That is the only way how they can raise the reputation and popularity of football. If Mesut Ozil wants to earn more money, then China and Amerika can potentially be the new destinations.
Mesut Ozil’s History
He professionally started to play football when he was only 18 years old. He spent two seasons in Schalke and played only 30 games for that period. After that, he went to another German club – Werder Bremen. He played there for 2 years, and, thanks to his skills and talents, he managed to attract some of the best clubs in the world. In 2010, he signed a contract with Real Madrid. For three years, he played 105 games and scored 19 goals. Since 2013, he is a member of Arsenal.
It is hard to say what exactly is going to happen with Ozil’s career. Whichever decision he makes, he will surely be one of the players that Arsenal fans are going to remember forever. He has spent seven years in the club so far, and that is the reason why he deserves respect.
