The Spaniard has been accused of having failed to adapt to the Premier League’s physicality.
Arsenal have decided to keep Mesut Ozil and not sell him in the upcoming transfer window. This is good news for the 2014 World Cup who has struggled to impress Unai Emery, but has recently sparkled in wins against Manchester United and Rennes. Meanwhile, it looks like the club board have decided to not sign Denis Suarez permanently.
The Spaniard has failed to hit the ground running for the English side, making a few substitute appearances. The club’s management also feels that Suarez has failed to adapt to the physicality of the Premier League.
The club initially signed the midfielder on loan during the winter transfer window, with an option to sign him permanently for £18m.
Emery still wants to give the Barcelona man time, but the club’s transfer committee want to use that money for other players.
The 25-year-old hasn’t had a good time since moving to Barcelona from Villarreal, failing to cement a place in the starting XI or even the bench. Also, reportedly Emery has noticed the effort put in by Ozil in his overall game, in terms of tracking back and defending. There were rumors that Ozil could be offloaded during the previous transfer window, but Emery had a change of plans, and has now begun to use the German playmaker more often.
With Emery finally getting a hold of his squad, and registering some decent results including the win over United, it looks unlike that he will offload Ozil.
