Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil has unsurprisingly emerged as a summer transfer target for Spanish giants Barcelona, who are once again linked with the German genius following the winter flirtations.
The 28-year-old Mesut Ozil is about to head into the final twelve months of his Arsenal deal, but the latest developments at the club have sparked plenty of rumours linking the German international with a summer swoop away from Emirates.
Mesut Ozil made 38 appearances for Gunners this season, adding 11 goals and providing as many assists along the way, but the German has repeatedly been on the receiving end of criticism throughout the season as well. .......Read more here.....

The Arsenal hierarchy are concerned about meeting Mesut Ozil’s wage demands of £300,000 a week according to the Daily Mail.
The Gunners have been worried about the German playmaker leaving the club in the summer, as his current contract of £140,000 per-week is set to expire in just over a year’s time.
However, it is being reported that Arsenal are now concerned about increasing his wages, as his performances have been poor of late.
Criticism of his displays of late
Ozil’s performances have been poor of late for the Gunners. He was virtually invisible in the north London derby defeat to Tottenham. For much of the campaign, he has struggled for any consistency. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal’s display in the 2-0 north London derby defeat at neighbours Tottenham on Sunday was a worrying one. Not only did the team seem to lack quality, they seemed to lack heart and desire, which is unacceptable in a derby match.
It is hard to say, but the Gunners outclassed by their neighbours. However, the Tottenham players just seemed to want the win more than Arsene Wenger’s side. The first half was relatively even, but the home side could have been two goals up by half-time. .......Read more here.....

So, Arsenal are in the final of the FA Cup and will take on Chelsea. The Gunners making it to the final has the potential to raise a big question. If Arsene Wenger’s side somehow won the trophy and managed a top four finish would this be a successful season for Arsenal?
Arsenal, of course, would still have to beat Chelsea in the final at Wembley. It would also mean the Gunners closing a gap of seven points on fourth-place Manchester City or a nine-point gap on third-place Liverpool. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal recorded a 2-1 win at Middlesbrough on Monday night, with goals from Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil enough to seal the victory. It was by no means a pretty one, but as midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain stated after the game they just needed a win.
Arsenal were not at their best and there was a slight nervousness about the Gunners, which is understandable because of their recent away form (four straight defeats).
However, in the end, the Gunners managed to grind out a win, in a fashion that they have struggled to do in the past. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal ended a run of four straight away defeats in the Premier League by winning 2-1 at Middlesbrough on Monday, courtesy of goals from Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.

According to Arsenal’s Germany international playmaker Mesut Ozil, it is the wrong time to talk about his contract situation. Instead, the German wants to concentrate on the Gunners quest for a top-four finish this season.
Arsenal all that’s important
Talking ahead of Monday’s visit to Middlesbrough Ozil told Sky Sports: “I think at the moment it would be wrong to really think about that, to go ahead and look at that.
“At the moment the team we’re having a more difficult spell and at this stage, I’m not important and no other player is important. What’s important is the club. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil admitted his stay at the Emirates Stadium could depend on whether the club finish in a Champions League spot or not this season. The German international has stalled contract talks with the Gunners, reportedly rejecting £280K-a-week offered from the club but says he will wait until the summer before making a decision, waiting for their final standing in the Premier League before committing his future or requesting a move. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal recorded a crucial 3-0 victory over West Ham at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night to aid the Gunners hopes of Champions League qualification.

The Hammers hit back with their own attack on nine minutes. Manuel Lanzini hit a free-kick from the edge of the penalty area that missed the target by a yard. A few minutes later the Hammers had another attempt on the Arsenal goal. Mark Noble found some space just inside the area and saw his go just wide of the left-hand post. .......Read more here.....

To be fair and square, and completely honest, Arsenal did receive their great share of criticism this season.
Most of it was well-deserved as fans had been put through a devastating campaign which is threatening to become the worst one in the Premier League era for the North London club.
Arsenal have suffered a humiliating Champions League defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich, who won 10-2 on aggregate, whereas the Gunners are also losing pace in the run for the top four spot in the Premier League. .......Read more here.....
