Ozil left out of FA cup final Squad. Travels to Turkey.

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has travelled to Turkey after been left out the squad to face Chelsea later today in the FA cup final.

Ozil haven't played for played for Arsenal for long time due to disgreements with the club over wages and contracts. Though, according to reports, he was injured. The playmaker has one left in his current contract with the club.

According to the 31-year-Old's agent, he will likely see out the contract than seeking a transfer this summer.

Former Arsenal player and current skysports pundit Paul Merson believes that the former German International cannot fit into Mike Arteta's current Arsenal

Merson said, "I think Ozil is a prime example of a player who has to play in a proper team, that is going to be right up there, dominating football matches. He's got to play in a majorly successful team.


"He can't play in this Arsenal team, here's why: he's not going to change his game now in his 30s, and Arsenal aren't going to change their game for him. He isn't tracking back, chasing players, and you need him in a team where you're getting 70 per cent of the ball each week, and he'll play. You get players around him, let him play.

"We all know how Ozil plays, you give him the ball and he'll find you. If you don't have the ball, he won't win it back for you for love nor money. He's not interested when they don't have the ball. How can you give someone £350k-a-week when we all knew that was his style of play?

"If he hasn't got the ball he's one of the worst players in the world! I would say that. Name me a worse player in the world when their team doesn't have the ball? I've never seen somebody so disinterested when they don't have the ball, but he hurts you at the other end!

"Can Arsenal form a team around him? At the moment, it's at the stage where you can't do that. They're not going to change the team for him. He'll pick up his £350,000-a-week and everything is rosy for him.

"They have to come to a deal with him; maybe he'll take £200k a week somewhere else. I don't know how this gets resolved though. Does he want to play football? If he loves football, he has to come to a deal with Arsenal, but it's easy to say that. Nobody wants to lose £150k a week, no matter how much you earn! Who is mad enough to throw that money away, no matter who you are?

Arsenal tackle Chelsea for FA cup glory at Wembley. A win will qualify Arsenal for next season's Europa League.
