Ozil is rebuilding his reputation
Arsenal fans may not like to hear it, but Ozil was disappointing in his first two full seasons at the Emirates.
There’s a reason why he is no longer widely regarded as the best No. 10 in world football - and it’s not just because he no longer plies his trade at the Bernabeu.
However, if Ozil can continue his current rich vein of form then there’s no reason why he can’t restore his reputation as one of the best playmakers on the planet.
