Emery, however, is having none of it and The Sun's Neil Ashton claims an increasing number of Arsenal players are getting frustrated with Ozil's mood swings. I needed to leave Arsenal because of the fact that Arsene Wenger wanted to play with a different kind of striker.
"My relationship with him for transfers in the last two or three weeks, we are speaking about that".
Gunners boss Unai Emery has mentioned the need to bring new faces at the club, and had earmarked Suarez as a potential signing very early on, but was unable to figure a deal out with the Catalans up until now.
"Then it's normal, I think, that sometimes I can choose something different because tomorrow will be a very hard match for the defensive phase, so I need my team balanced on the pitch". "He's had injuries and not been OK to play matches, but now after these two weeks maybe this Saturday will be okay for him".
Troubled Higuain could be reunited with Sarri at Chelsea
Pressed on the issue, Gattuso added: "I've got a burning inside me, we have 25 players, so let's not talk about this now". The loan move for Higuain certainly seems to signal the end of Alvaro Morata's time at Chelsea .
Ozil, who has been linked with a possible move to AC Milan, was on the scoresheet the last time Arsenal beat Chelsea at home in the League - a 3-0 victory in September 2016.
Ahead of the match, Emery insisted there is no issue over Ozil's form or lack of match time.
"Sometimes you are better and sometimes you are worse".
For Week 23, I've analyzed the betting market for every match and provided four value plays (28-50-1 season record, -9.31 units).
"I want every player to give consistency".
