EPL: Mikel Arteta speaks on Mesut Ozil’s Arsenal exit after goalless draw with Crystal Palace

ENGLAND – Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has given an update on Mesut Ozil’s imminent move to Fenerbahce.

Arteta has frozen Ozil out his squad for the 2020/2021 season.

The 32-year-old has not played a single minute for the Gunners and is widely expected to leave in the current transfer window.

When asked about Ozil following Arsenal’s 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace on Thursday, Arteta remained tight-lipped.
