Arsenal manager Unai Emery has ruled out an exit for midfielder Mesut Ozil before the transfer deadline next week Monday.
The Premier League transfer window ended three weeks ago but the European transfer market is still on, meaning that players like Mesut Ozil can leave before it ends on September 2.
The German has been linked with a move away from the club after falling down the attacking midfield pecking order at Arsenal but club manager Unai Emery is adamant that Ozil will stay at the Emirates Stadium beyond this summer.
According to him via his pre-match press conference on Thursday morning ahead of the North London Derby clash with Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday evening, Unai Emery said that Mesut Ozil has trained well this week and he’s getting to full fitness after missing the start of the new Premier League season.
He missed the first game of the season at Newcastle United due to security concerns before sitting out the home game against Burnley because of illness.
Arsenal recorded victories (1-0 vs Newcastle United and 2-1 vs Burnley) in those games before suffering their first loss of the season, a 3-1 away defeat at the hands of league leaders, Liverpool.
Mesut Ozil was dropped from the squad of 18 for the Liverpool game.
