According to reports, Mesut Ozil’s effort levels in training is becoming a major worrying factor at North London club Arsenal.
The German international playmaker has yet again become the point of serious criticism after the gunner’s 2-1 loss to Watford at the weekend.
The team’s second most expensive signing in history was only deemed fit enough to start from the bench and when he was called upon, he missed a glorious opportunity to score and played a major role in Wenger’s team conceding a late goal that eventually lost them the game at Vicarage Road.
The FIFA World Cup winner’s attitude in training have always been a major concern during his playing time at the Emirates, but with his current contract expiring a fear is growing that he is seeing out the contract.
It is not only in games but at the Gunner’s London Colney training base that Mesut Ozil looks to be failing to apply himself.
According to Daily Mail, sources at the North London club claim his effort during training has dropped and it has not gone unnoticed by his colleagues during training. They report that backroom staff are growing worried at his lack of effort this campaign.
It’s led to claims that the Gunners will look to cash in on Mesut Ozil during the January transfer window when they can still earn a transfer fee for the German.
