Man United and Fenerbahce 'Lead Race' To Sign £350000-per-week Arsenal Ace Mesut Ozil

Unai Emery has told Mesut Ozil that he is entering a new phase in his career and, ahead of his 30th birthday next month, challenged the German playmaker to "do more" and raise his performances.

Rafa Benitez explains why Newcastle's Premier League stats aren't "real" - yetAnd after securing their first away win of the season at the Cardiff City Stadium two weeks ago, Emery is targeting a victory against Newcastle but insists it will be a hard.

Arsenal, after losing their opening two fixtures of the Premier League season, appear to have found their feet under Emery. "I have a very good relationship with Mesut and professionally I push him for improvements to give us the best in his qualities and performances".

'His process is his process, ' Emery said.

The midfielder was criticised for posing for photographs with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in the build-up to the World Cup, which saw 2014 champions Germany knocked out at the group stage.

All players on worldwide duty last week returned in good health and are available for selection, Arsenal said.


Emery admitted Ozil's first global break since his retirement will have been a hard adjustment for the player, but that the pair have been able to spend beneficial time on the training ground together. "They played on Tuesday, it is Xhaka, Lichtsteiner, Welbeck and Sokratis and I want and I hope that they hope that they come back well and prepare for the match in Newcastle".

'Mesut, like other players, works very well here.

"I want to find with him the possibility to do the best, to make decisive passes, to do more near and in the box to score".

It was Gazidis who oversaw the personnel changes after Wenger's departure following more than two decades in charge. However, I think we'll see him keep his place at the heart of midfield this weekend.

"I knew Nacho in Spain when he was playing in Osasuna and in Malaga".
