Arsenal manager Unai Emery has insisted Mesut Ozil has the “possibility” to be a key part of his team again.

The playmaker has only featured twice for the Gunners this season, but in an interview with The Athletic refuted suggestions he may leave the Emirates any time soon.

“He worked well in pre-season and he was playing in the games. But then the problem he had along with Sead (Kolasinac) stopped him. After that he was sick for one week and then he lost a lot of training to keep his fitness.
