SPECULATION has been rife for months now regarding the future of Mesut Ozil.
The German playmaker, 30, has barely seen the pitch in 2019 – featuring in just two matches this season, including a Carabao Cup run-out.
Arsenal boss Unai Emery now appears to prefer the likes of youngsters Joe Willock, Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka to Ozil.
A host of former stars, including Ray Parlour, Ian Wright and Martin Keown, have all had their say on what the issue appears to be.
But with the former Real Madrid star's stock rapidly dropping, we take a look at what bosses WITHIN the club are saying about the floundering flop.

ARSENAL fans love Sanllehi – especially after such a fantastic summer in the transfer window, pulling off stunning move after stunning move.

Sanllehi said: "Unai's policy has always been to play the ones that work hard in training.”
HE'S the man in charge of picking the team – and he's not picking Ozil.
While Emery has refused to question the midfielder's fitness or attitude, he has simply stated he's not good enough.
The boss said: “I am thinking every time to decide with the best players for each match and the best players in the squad to play and help us.
“When I decided he isn't in the squad, it is because I think another player deserves it more.”
Then when asked if Ozil could be sold in January, he merely mumbled: “He's our player, now.”
