Ozil sends telling message to Arteta as he continues to be frozen out at Arsenal

Mesut Ozil has hinted that he wants to return to Mikel Arteta's Arsenal team after he retweeted a fan-made video of himself in action on his personal Twitter account.

The German midfielder has been completely frozen out in recent months, and has not played for the Gunners since March.

There was strong speculation that he would leave the club in the summer, but in the end a move did not materialise and he now looks set to stay until January at the earliest.

Many are questioning whether Ozil will ever be seen in an Arsenal shirt again, but judging by his activity on social media the player himself would be more than happy to represent the team again.

On Monday afternoon he retweeted a video featuring some of his best moments playing under Arteta, and posted the caption: "#startof2020 #throwback #M10 #YaGunnersYa".

Some have interpreted the post as a plea to Arteta to give him another opportunity to shine in his side, but it remains to be seen if the Spaniard listens.

If he does not make another appearance before his contract expires at the end of the season it would be a highly underwhelming end to Ozil's career in Arsenal, and would tarnish many of the good memories he created early on in his spell.

His former manager Arsene Wenger hopes that something can be resolved, telling BBC Sport: "I feel it is a waste for him (Ozil).

"Firstly because he's in the years where a player of his talent can produce the most. And it's a waste for the club as well because he's a super talent, a creative talent that in the final third can create that killer pass.

"He's been the record player of assists, so you have to find a way to get him involved again."
