Mesut Ozil is seemingly making a name for himself off the pitch as well as on it.

The Arsenal star may well be a key man in the Gunners midfield, but he is also proving his skills far away from the field.

On numerous occasions, the Germany international has been spotted on camera juggling his chewing gum before kicking it back into his own mouth.

However, on a much more hygienic level, the 28-year-old has upped his game and performed some fine skills to juggle a coin before chipping it into an Arsenal Foundation charity bucket.

The north London club have certainly used Ozil's bizarre skill set to their own advantage, and acquired the midfield magician's fine juggling capabilities for a promotional video.

Shkodran Mustafi, Danny Welbeck and Rob Holding all attempt to flick coins into the Arsenal Foundation charity bucket with their hands to little success... before Ozil arrives.

The German quickly steals the show with his neat footwork and a successful first attempt at chipping the coin into the bucket, before claiming: "It's not that hard".

The Arsenal squad will donate a day's pay to the foundation this month, as a Christmas gesture to the club's charity.

Arsene Wenger will be hoping Ozil can perform such skill and accuracy as showcased here on a regular basis this season, as Arsenal look to continue their title challenge over the coming weeks and months.

The German has been one of the club's star performers so far this campaign, and Arsenal are hopeful of tying the former Real Madrid star down to a new deal - as he enters the final 18 months of his contract.

And his performances could be the difference for Wenger's men in their bid to successfully come through a busy festive period in which they will face Stoke, Everton, Manchester City and West Brom.
