Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has been linked with a move to DC United.
Earlier today it has been reported that following the recent incidents concerning Ozil’s security at London the German’s agent flew to the United States to start negotiations with the MLS side.
Meanwhile, the Gunners are preparing to face Burnley on Saturday. And ahead of the game Unai Emery was asked about the rumors linking Ozil with DC United.
To the question “would he understand if Ozil wanted to leave for Washington?”, Arsenal coach said:
“Really, really when we’re starting playing against Burnley, can you think I am thinking and losing my time if the player can leave here? My focus, my direction is playing on Saturday.”
Unai Emery also revealed that Mesut Ozil is a little sick and he didn’t train yesterday.
The game is scheduled on August 17, Saturday at Emirates Stadium.
