The German’s long term stays unsure in north London along with his contract expiring on the finish of the season.
Alexis Sanchez is in the similar scenario as his workforce-mate however Wenger has embraced his go back from the harm he suffered initially of the marketing campaign.
While the Chilean is again within the beginning XI and installed an excellent show in opposition to West Brom on Monday night time, Mesut Ozil has slightly featured.
He was once dropped to the bench of their 2-zero victory over the Baggies, managing simply seven mins when he changed Sanchez within the ultimate moments.
And former Gunner Keown believes Wenger has misplaced trust in Ozil after failing to ship in large video games on a lot of events.
“I think he loves playing football, Sanchez, I don’t see there’s an issue with him,” Keown stated on BBC Radio five Live ahead of the fit.
“Ozil of the 2 gamers, are they going to signal, aren’t they, is the only I wouldn’t trust as a lot mentally, and I imagine he’s not taking part in this night since the gaffer truly can’t trust him anymore.
“I feel it’s an enormous tale that Ozil doesn’t play this night.
“If you have a look at their pre-seasons, Ozil wasn’t within the German squad in the summertime, he got here again on the first actual day of pre-season, and didn’t then get started the season, there was once just a little of suspicion round him.
“Last yr he went lacking for a few months and I feel that’s his tactic in the case of getting clear of the soccer membership.
“I don’t know – however I’ve a sense that he’s going to take his reliability clear of variety.”
Arsene Wenger may just make adjustments to his workforce variety the next day night when Arsenal tackle BATE Borisov within the Europa League (6pm).
