Arsenal LIVE: Mesut Ozil’s Arsenal exit, How Arsenal star lost £400k in 90 minutes, Arteta’s Ceballos intervention, Wilshere reveals Wenger advice and future plans



While Mesut Ozil is perfectly within his rights to stand his ground at Arsenal and see out the contract they gave him, it’s a shame to see his talent being wasted as he sits in the stands.

He turns 32 next week so he doesn’t have too many good years left, so it would be great to see him finally get a move so he can play a key role somewhere.

It’s unlikely that any of the big European sides will touch him anymore so he might have to venture further for his next club, and a report from The Sun has indicated that an MLS move is now looking likely.

Arsenal completed their transfer business on deadline day with the £45million signing of Thomas Partey and Mikel Arteta will now look to continue the feelgood factor around the Emirates.

The Gunners had already added Willian from Chelsea and Gabriel from Lille, but finally strengthened their midfield with the signing of the Ghana international.

Arsenal are now said to be looking to offload Mesut Ozil, with the hierarchy willing to pay up part of his contract so he can join another club for nothing now.

The World Cup winner is unlikely to go quietly though, and his offer to help save mascot Gunnersaurus’ job has been branded ‘an inappropriate PR stunt’.

The mood around north London was further dampened by the news that Kieran Tierney must self-isolate as a result of Stuart Armstrong’s positive COVID test, while the Hale End academy has been forced to shut after a senior member of staff tested positive.

Former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner has revealed he blew £400k in 90 minutes at a casino while playing for the Gunners in 2011.

Recalling the incident, the Dane told The Guardian: “I’m way too drunk to sit at a table.

“That much I get. But roulette is a different matter. Red, black, red, black. How hard can it be?

“After 90 minutes I’ve lost £400,000. Money I don’t have. My bank account is overdrawn and I’m bankrupt if my luck doesn’t turn.

“I stagger into the loos and splash water on my face. Then I find a cashier and get another £50,000 of chips.”
