Arsenal club hierarchy might be sweating over a new contract for German play-maker Mesut Ozil but the midfielder is currently enjoying his time in the pre-season training.
The 28-year old is known for his immense vision in passing as he often proved that he can pick out a pass on the ground that no one else could see.
The Gunners are currently camped in Australia as they continue their pre-season tour which will see them play couple more games in Australia then move to Asia and tour Singapore and China.
Ozil, who is training along with his teammates has once again showed all the doubters why he is so highly rated by Wenger and the club officials. He has simply taken on three defenders and split them with a simple pass to his teammate in the final third.
Arsenal social media channels were so happy that they shared the short clip on both twitter and Instagram. The caption of the tweet read: “@MesutOzil1088 doing what @MesutOzil1088 does…”

Meanwhile, Arsenal and Arsene Wenger are determined to tie down Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil to new contracts as both the players entered their final year in their respective contracts.
Mesut Ozil is preferring to stay with the club by signing a new deal but a decision over Alexis Sanchez is yet to be made public. The German international has iterated his interest in staying at Emirates beyond next season on Wednesday in Australia.
“It is definitely my preference to stay,” the German said on Wednesday.
“Once everyone is back in London, we will sit down and discuss the future. I have always said that I feel very good at Arsenal.”
However, it would be a foolish thing to let a player of Ozil’s calibre leave the club for free and Arsenal will need to act quick as he still has three to four years of top flight football still left in him.
