Arsenal chief Raul Sanllehi says there is no issue between Mesut Ozil and Unai Emery following rumours about the German's future at the north London club.

The German has fallen down the pecking order at Arsenal as Emery keeps exploring the services of other midfield options.

According to widespread reports, the Gunners want to get rid of Ozil with Fenerbahce leading the race to sign him on loan in January, but Sanllehi says otherwise as he believes the 30-year-old, who has featured just twice for the club so far this season, still has a future at the Emirates.

Speaking at an Arsenal fans forum, he said: "Unai has had many good players in other teams also, and he has always followed the same policy.

"That is to try not to make any distinctions, play the ones who work hard in training and reward the effort with playing time.

"There is nothing against Mesut on the contrary and I hope we get to see him much more in the next games because his qualities are without question.

"But he needs to contribute 24/7 and that’s what Unai expects from him.

"It’s not that he’s not working so well, but there are others who are deserving more playing time, but Unai can’t treat him differently than any other player.

"You may have read that Unai has put a barrier up, but nothing at all like this has happened."
