Wenger: Mesut Ozil showed what he can do

Arda to leave Barcelona in January with Premier League move possible

The German is out of contract in the summer and is not expected to renew his current deal, with Jose Mourinho reportedly ready to try and lure him to Old Trafford.

Mesut Ozil is Arsenal's record signing and has been an integral part of Wenger's side for the last few years. Turan has failed to cement a place at the Nou Camp and been told by coach Ernesto Valverde he does not figure in his plans.

It's a fascinating situation and I'm sure Arsenal will be desperate not to see Ozil join one of their domestic rivals so it leaves Wenger in a tough predicament. Arsenal are baulking at the €397,000-a-week Ozil wants to stay and Barca are also thought to be unwilling to pay such a high sum for the former Real Madrid star.

Mesut Ozil "showed what he can do" in an astonishing four-minute spell that impressed Arsene Wenger and lifted Arsenal to a 5-0 win against Huddersfield Town.

"You can not be at the top level all the time", Giroud said, as quoted by the Mirror.

"He is our playmaker and a key player", said the Frenchman.

Speaking ahead of the Saturday's clash, he explained: 'Look, that's all speculation, you can not interfere with that.

"We have never questioned him, never".

"Sometimes people expect the best from you every single game because you are a top player".

Ahead of his upturn in form, there was some criticism about his commitment to the team, but Giroud has made it clear that it has not been a concern among the other players at Arsenal.

Only time will tell but I have a amusing feeling we'll see Ozil link-up with Mourinho and join United on a free transfer next summer.

On Lacazette's half-time withdrawal: "It is an injury, it looked like a groin injury so he might be out for a while".
