Arsenal manager Unai Emery - Mesut Ozil is important to us.

  • Arsenal need Ozil's quality.

  • Ozil is back and available for selection for Arsenal this weekend.

Unai Emery insists that Mesut Ozil can still regain his place in his Arsenal side.

Ozil, who moved from the Santiago Bernabeu back in 2013, has not represented the Gunners on the pitch this season due to different reasons, but Emery has confirmed the midfielder is back in line to feature in the north London derby at the Emirates on Sunday.

“We need him because he is a different player in our team.”

The Spaniard also quashed speculation suggesting the 30-year-old could leave this summer, as he believes a 'consistent' Ozil could be a secret weapon for his side.

Emery said as the Mirror reported: “With Mesut Ozil it’s the same message to him that I can say to you: We need him – and him firstly to be consistent in training, to be available in each match.

“For example, last week he wasn’t ready to play 100 percent at Liverpool . This week he is getting better with each training session and physically he is now better.

“We need him because he is a different player in our team. We have different ways to prepare to win, and different qualities with the players, different characteristics from them. We need him to be available and he can help us with his quality.”
