Unai Emery is reportedly not in good terms with Mesut Ozil and he’s looking at the prospect of swapping him with Real Madrid midfielder Isco in January.
Prior to their 3-1 win over Burnley on Saturday, the Spanish manager failed to utilize the former Real Madrid playmaker in three consecutive games, giving rise to speculations that there is a rift between both parties.
If truly Unai Emery has anything against the Ozil, he must end it as soon as possible else he may lose his job just like José Mourinho.
Irrespective of the fact that the Spaniard is doing well with the Gunners, Arsenal board members won’t hesitate to sack the former Paris St-German manager should he fail to feature the 30-year-old more prominently.
Ozil is a very important part of the team and that could be seen in the huge amount the club is paying him as weekly wages.
His creativity at the middle of the pitch is unrivalled and he’s has shown to everyone the reason he’s called ‘the assist king’

Though he’s not the type of player who would promise you 20 goals in a single season, Ozil will surely provide not less than 15 assists in a single season if he’s happy and willing to do so.
Since his move to the Emirates stadium in 2014, the German has an impressive record of 73 assists and 41 goals.
His versatility makes him the very last player Sven Mislintant will want to let go in January.
He can operate in any position at the final half of the pitch. His ability to create much goalscoring opportunities is one of its kind in the world.
Considering all of his abilities and experience, it won’t be surprising if the Gunners hierarchy decide to let of Emery so as to keep their most important player if results didn’t come their way.
Emery should take a clue from José Mourinho’s stay at Old Trafford. The Portuguese manager was involved in a very heated controversy with one of his highly-rated players Paul Pogba and things didn’t work out for him at Old Trafford.
His unhealthy relationship with the Frenchman damaged the unity in the team and Tottenham eventually led to his contract termination. This is why it’s very important for Emery to patch things up with the German star as early as he could.
