Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has taken to social media to let the fans know he is ready ahead of the vital clash with Newcastle United in the Premier League on Monday.

The 30-year-old was handed a lucrative new contract to remain at the Emirates stadium last season after watching Alexis Sanchez choose to join rivals Manchester United in the January transfer window.

Even though he has become the highest earner in terms of weekly wages in the current Arsenal squad, the midfielder has failed to keep his place as one of the key members of the starting eleven.

Under Unai Emery this season, the former Real Madrid star has been handed very little playing time.

Ozil has been enjoying a few chances in the first team in recent weeks though and he will be hoping to receive another rare start on Monday when the Gunners welcome Newcastle United to the Emirates stadium in a very vital game in the race to finish in the top four of the league.
