Arsenal manager talked about £350,000-a-week playmaker situation

Gunners coach Unai Emery has said that Mesut Ozil is improving and he will be given game time if the club needs him. One of the best footballers in the world during his prime, former Germany international has played only two games for Arsenal this campaign so far.

The Spanish tactician has left Mesut out from his squad for most games but said that he is an important figure for the London club and is improving in training. Emery said: Ozil, for us, is essential. Sometimes one player could be outstanding playing or could be important being on the bench or could be essential preparing for the next game. ”

This is our mentality, and this is the way we want to create with 25 footballers in the squad. Mesut is in the same way, and I told you now for the last three weeks he is working and improving and being better in training. If we need him, we are going to use him.”

The Spanish manager has used Dani Ceballos as a playmaker in Gunners last few games, and the Real Madrid loanee has done decently so far. However, if the 31-year-old midfielder keeps training hard, he could be back in being a regular for the London club.

When at his best, German attacker can do wonders on the pitch. An in-form Mesut could be priceless for Gunners. The London club are currently third in the Premier League table with 15 points, one behind Man City. They will be hoping to register their fifth win of the campaign on Monday against Sheffield United.
