Arsenal’s hopes of emerging the English Premier League’s Champions in the 2015/2016 season were at all time high at the beginning of the season. The Gunners were in fine form and the bookies were rating them highly as among the Premier League clubs with huge chances of clinching the title at the end of the season.

However, this was never to be given the Gunners lack of consistency and failure to take up all the three points against apparently easy teams. The curtains are falling on the 2015/2016 English Premier League season and with Leicester City already crowned the Premier League’s Champions Arsenal’s best outcome can only be a top two or three finish.

While this is not good enough a performance for a club of Arsenal’s Pedigree, we have to give credit to some of Arsenal players whose performances have been instrumental in ensuring a top four finish.

One such outstanding performer for the Gunners is the German International Midfielder Mesut Ozil. Mesut Ozil’s performances have enabled the Gunners secure next season’s Champions League qualification amidst intense competition from rival Premier League teams.

The German international has provided a total of 18 assists and a number of goals all of which have been fundamental for Arsenal especially in the absence of Santi Cazorla who has been missing in action due to injury concerns.

Reports are coming through of Mesut Ozil’s potential move away from the Emirates and the possibility of the German International moving over to Arsenal’s rivals Manchester United should Jose Mourinho take over as the new Red Devil’s manager. It is rumoured that Mesut Ozil’s fall out with Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger could trigger the midfielder’s exit.
Although the German has been quick to reiterate how happy he is at North London he reveals that a move in the future is a possibility. It remains to be seen whether Ozil will still be in an Arsenal Jersey come next season. However, Arsenal would be very reluctant to let go of their star midfielder and especially if it’s in a move to rivals Manchester United.
