Mesut Ozil wasn’t selected for Arsenal’s Europa League match against BATE Borisov

Merson commented on Ozil's absence from Arsenal's Europa League RO32 clash at BATE Borisov, which the club lost 1-0.

The Gunners are now fifth in the Premier League and have endured a poor run of form of late, losing four of their last seven games in all competitions.

Having appeared in just 14 of Arsenal's 26 Premier League matches this season, Ozil's future at the Emirates beyond this season is far from certain.

Earning £350,000 a week, Ozil has found it hard to be in manager Unai Emery's good graces but he still wants to gut it out in London, and only a permanent move away would suffice if he was to leave the Emirates.

The German has struggled to earn his place in Emery's setup in recent weeks, with a combination of injuries, illness and the Spaniard's tactical plans resulting in Ozil falling out of favour at the Emirates.

The Daily Mirror say that the French champions are monitoring the player's development at Arsenal.

"You play your best players and work around them", Merson told Sky Sports News. 'He's there best player and he doesn't play...

"I dont know if they are trying to push him into retire because he must sit there and think, 'I might as well retire if I can't get in this team".

'He must sit at home and watch them and think, 'how do I not get in this team?'.

"Ozil is not so influential that you have to build a team around him, but he has to play because he is their best player".

Many believe that the player doesn't have a good relationship with the manager, who is well known to be the person who has his reservations with the star players of the team (remember Neymar?).
