Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been under intense pressure over the past couple of months with constant speculation about his possible departure.

Ozil has initially been linked with a Manchester United switch but Arsene Wenger would rather not sell his prized asset to his direct rivals in the Premier League, more so to his hated rival Jose Mourinho.
