Ozil left out from Arsenal’s 25-man Europa League squad


Mesut Ozil has been left out of Arsenal’s 25-man squad for the Europa League group stages.

The club’s highest earning player – who pockets £350,000 ($454,000) a week – is one of two senior players who has been cut by boss Mikel Arteta, whose 25-man squad for the competition is only allowed to include 17 ‘non locally trained players’.

With 19 to choose from, however, Arteta has had to decide which two he would not involve – and Ozil, along with defender Sokratis, has been left out.

Ozil’s last appearance for Arsenal came in the win against West Ham in March, the final match before football was suspended due to the pandemic.

He has not even made a matchday squad this season, even in the Carabao Cup when Arteta has rung the changes.

Ozil’s current deal expires in June 2021, but he can join a new club in Europe in January 2021.
