Mesut Ozil is set to return from a knee problem ahead of time according to reports.
Ozil picked up the knee ligament strain before half-time, yet played the full 90 minutes against Chelsea In October.
The German felt a ‘crack’ in his knee, but seemed all right and was allowed to continue for the rest of the game.
According to Mirror, Ozil feels his recovery from the knee problem is now “on the right path” and he cannot wait to get back to action with the Gunners.
“I am working every day to get myself fit and I am on the right path now” Ozil said on Arsenal Player
“I am working every day to get myself fit and I am on the right path now. It won’t be much too much longer before I am back on the pitch.”
“I hope to be back training with the whole team again as soon as possible.” Ozil added.
“After a time, you really miss playing football. You miss the ball and just want to play. When you watch the games and think that you could have been playing, and playing well, it makes you miss it, but that’s the way things are.”
Ozil is optimistic that his return will be earlier than expected.
Pictures have surfaced seeing the German international walking out of session at the Gunner’s training base.
Hopefully Ozil will be fit and ready to take on Monaco in February to help the Gunner’s Qualify for the next round of Champions League.
