Former Arsenal star Charles Nicholas has claimed that Mesut Ozil is not committed to helping coach Unai Emery at the club.

Emery took over the reins at the London side in the summer after the exit of long-serving manager Arsene Wenger.

However, Nicholas has questioned Ozil’s commitment to the Gunners project under Emery.

“If this isn’t improved by January, and a decent offer comes in, Arsenal will let him go,” Nicholas told Metro UK.

“It keeps coming up that Fenerbahce and these sort of clubs would be interested in looking at him.

“I don’t know financially how they could do it, (perhaps) some of the Chinese money that has been floating about.

“There will be teams that are interested and I’ll tell you how it will end up working.

“It wouldn’t be a salary thing, it would be a big chunk of money that he would get and that would nurse the bruising that his salary would have to drop a bit.

“But the thing is, is he really that committed to it?

“I think we are starting to identify that the new manager, it’s taken him quite a bit of time, is getting on fine with him, but he will be saying ‘if you’re not playing well, you’ll be out the team’, and he will not accept that Ozil.”
