Mesut Ozil's first season under Unai Emery hasn't exactly gone to plan so far.

The playmaker arrived back at Arsenal with a point to prove following a tumultuous fallout with the German FA after the World Cup.

Sadly for Ozil, injuries have taken their toll on his playing time and Emery has been reluctant to play him in certain games.

The 30-year-old was benched away at Bournemouth because of the physical nature of the game and he was omitted from the match day squad for the Carabao Cup tie against Tottenham.

Reports have hinted that Emery doesn't see Ozil in his long-term plans, leading to the German being linked with a move away from the Emirates.

He wouldn't be short of suitors, but surely Arsenal and Emery wouldn't want to offload one of he finest playmakers in the world?

Well, according to Ozil's agent, there is no chance of him leaving north London anytime soon.

“I would prefer not to speak publicly about Mesut’s situation, but given the recent speculation linking him with a move away from Arsenal, I do feel it is important to provide some clarity so we can end this and focus on football,” Dr. Erkut Sogut told Goal.

“Mesut signed a new contract last January because he saw his future at Arsenal and nothing has changed in his mind. He wants to stay for the duration of that contract and maybe even longer.

“Mesut is 100 per cent committed to Arsenal Football Club. He loves the club, shares its values and does not want to be anywhere else.

"He is proud to wear the shirt and honoured to represent Arsenal on and off the pitch. He takes his responsibilities - including being selected as one of the captains this season - very seriously and has a great relationship with his team-mates, the staff and fans.”

Looks like Ozil will not be joining Aaron Ramsey in leaving the club in the next two transfer windows.

While he hasn't been anywhere near his best in 2018/19, losing a player of his quality would surely be detrimental to Emery's quest to get Arsenal back into the top four.
