Mesut Ozil has posted a message to Arsenal fans saying he doesn’t regret joining the club seven years ago.

Ozil moved to the Emirates from Real Madrid in 2013 and impressed at times under Arsene Wenger.

He has struggled since the Frenchman departed with Unai Emery and Mikel Arteta regularly leaving him out of the Gunners side.

Indeed, Ozil did not feature when football returned after the coronavirus lockdown and could leave the Premier League giants this summer.

But he has hinted he would make the move again if given the chance, praising former boss Wenger.

Ozil posted on social media, alongside a picture of himself and Wenger: “7 years ago I joined the @Arsenal family and Mon. Wenger [heart emoji] And I would not hesitate to do it all over again.”

Ozil has just one year left on his current Arsenal contract which sees him pick up a reported £350,000 per week.

He said on his future: “My position is clear. I’m here through to the last day of our agreement and I’ll give everything I have for this club.

“Situations like these will never break me, they only make me stronger. I showed in the past that I can come back into the team and I will show it again.

“I’ll decide when I go, not other people. I didn’t sign for two or three years, I signed for four and that should be respected by everyone.
