Mesut Ozil’s miserable time at Arsenal continues after he was left out of the club’s Europa League squad.

The 31-year-old has not played for the Gunners since March and has not featured in the matchday squad for the last 17 matches.

He only played twice in Europe last season and the arrivals of the likes of Thomas Partey, Willian and Gabriel mean manager Mikel Arteta’s decision to leave him out of their Europa League squad is the clearest message yet the former Germany international, whose contract expires at the end of the season, has no future at the club.

Defender Sokratis and William Saliba have also been left out of the European squad.

On a reported £350,000-a-week, Ozil’s Arsenal future has long been a topic of debate amongst Gunners fans, with the club reportedly in discussions to cancel the final 12 months of his contract.
