Arsenal boss Unai Emery is prepared to release Mesut Ozil for loan next month.
The Daily Mail says Ozil is losing his battle to convince Unai Emery he has an Arsenal future as the club consider sending the German out on loan.
The midfielder’s future at the Emirates Stadium was thrown into further doubt on Wednesday night after he was left out of the squad to face north London rivals Tottenham.
Emery refused to disguise the German’s omission — openly admitting his decision was ‘tactical’.
Arsenal sources claim the Spaniard knows he has a hugely talented player in Ozil, but he has wanted to see a positive reaction from his No 10 during what has been a tumultuous few weeks.
