Mesut Ozil OUT of Arsenal’s FA Cup final clash with Chelsea after spending time in Turkey

MESUT OZIL is OUT of tomorrow’s FA Cup final clash with Chelsea, according to reports.

And there will be no return to action against the Blues at Wembley.

According to Gooner Talk’s Chris Wheatley, Ozil has spent “the last few days” in Turkey and is out of contention entirely.

A back issue is the official reason for the 31-year-old’s absences of late.

Prior to English football’s restart, Ozil had started every single Premier League match under Mikel Arteta.

But the German World Cup winner has found himself frozen out since.

Fenerbahce have been linked with the star, who has one year remaining on his £350,000-a-week contract at the Emirates.

But according to his agent Erkut Sogut, he is “90 per cent” likely to remain in North London until 2021.

Sogut told futblogiant: “I do not think there will be a change in the case of Mesut Ozil until the summer of 2021.

“He has a contract. There is no change. He will remain in Arsenal.

“90 per cent [he] will leave Arsenal in 2021. Mesut to Asia, America or Turkey? Yes, maybe.”
