squads. Despite having a lucrative contract with the Gunners, Ozil will not be available to play for his club until at least February, and chances of him staying at the club have fallen as Arsenal are trying to find a suitable transfer destination for the German. In a recent interview with Sky Sports, former Arsenal midfielder

Jack Wilshere

has spoken about Ozil’s situation.

“I think he'd be a big player in that team,

“I would love to see Ozil play in that team under Arteta but obviously that's not happening at the moment. He could get on the ball and feed the likes of [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang and [Alexandre] Lacazette.

“I loved playing with him. He was a top player. It's a shame, but what is happening is happening, and no one knows but I'm sure everyone will find out one day.”

Asked about his own possible transfer destinations, Wilshere responded:

“I'm in a position now where I can make a decision based on footballing reasons and pick the team that I think I could fit into,

“I will have a look at the team, the players, the league they're in and how the manager wants to play. I don't think being at a smaller club like West Ham really suited me. There have been a few talks with clubs, but nothing that I have ever fancied quite yet.

“I don't think I have a preference to be honest. It has to be the right club for footballing reasons whether that is in England, Spain, North America or anywhere, across Asia.

“I'm up for trying anything and I think at this point I have to be as well because I have been at a top club in England, I've been at a smaller club and I'm realistic to know that the chances of getting a big, big club in England are slim, so it might have to be somewhere else I have to look.”
