28-year-old star will be making Arsenal transfer move, claims Keown

Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown has singled out the star whom he is expecting to say goodbye to the club in the near future.

Arsene Wenger had to deal with a lot of speculation which unsettled most of his first team players during the summer before Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was eventually sold to Liverpool.

Mesut Ozil was one of the stars who managed to remain at the club despite rumours strongly linking him with an exit.

However, Martin Keown insists the Germany international is still likely to complete a move away from the club based on what has occurred recently.

“I think he’s testing Wenger more than any other player has.” the BBC pundit said

“I think it was Belarus the other week, he didn’t fancy going. He didn’t want to go.

“Suddenly he was injured again, he played nine minutes against West Bromwich Albion on the Monday, so how did he get injured there?

“I think in some departments he’s already left. Psychologically, mentally, he’s already left the football club.

“Maybe Wenger is now trying to do the best deal he can to get some compensation for him. ‘I think he doesn’t want that sort of player around the youngsters in the group.”
