Mesut Ozil reportedly missed Arsenal’s team-bonding dinner because he was on a break in Sweden.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain posted a picture of the Arsenal squad out for a meal last night – with Ozil a notable absentee.
Ozil has just 18 months to run on his current contract at the Emirates but has yet to agree fresh terms.
But Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet say Ozil was spotted in a shopping mall in Gothenburg yesterday.
