The German FA are set to make Arsenal fans' week complete with an announcement over star playmaker Mesut Ozil.

The 28-year-old has been in outstanding form again this season, highlighting that this week with an outstanding late winner against Bulgarian side Ludogorets Razvad on Tuesday.

Ozil's form is so on point at the moment that he has been involved with five of the last eight goals that the Gunners have scored.

Fans will be hoping that he can continue that kind of form into this weekend's North London Derby against Tottenham.

And with vital games against the likes of Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain coming up, having Ozil fresh and at his best will be paramount.

With that in mind, Arsenal have been handed a huge boost by the German FA, who will allegedly leave the player out of their World Cup qualifier with San Marino and following friendly with Italy.

The report is coming from German publication Kicker, who claim that national team boss Joachim Low will give Ozil the extra time off to rest.

And while Ozil would almost definitely have featured against United and PSG anyway, the added time off from national team duty will come as music to Arsenal ears.

Wenger on board

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has already voiced his opinion that his star man could do with a break and is hopeful that Germany will indeed leave him out of the games next week.

"I think it would be an intelligent decision," Wenger said via the Daily Mirror.

“We have to wait until he gives out his selection.

"We need to wait and see.”

Ozil has already played 16 matches for both club and country this season, scoring seven goals in the process.

But the news isn't only pleasing Wenger, as a number of Arsenal fans have taken to social media to praise the decision.
