Arsenal manager Unai Emery has admitted that he wants to see Nacho Monreal sign a new contract at the Emirates.

Emery said Ozil had simply been struggling with illness and he was fit to start the following week against Cardiff.

Ozil is expected to be back in action for Arsenal this weekend when they take on Newcastle United in the Premier League.

Goalkeeper: Once again, Petr Cech looked uncomfortable with the ball at his feet during the win over Cardiff City last time out but I still don't think Emery is going to bring in Bernd Leno just yet.

'The reason is that I am very happy with the last two victories in the Premier League and also with the performances and I want to push every player to be okay to help the team if for one minute, 30 minutes or half time or 90 minutes'.

"It's the same", said Emery when asked about playing Aubameyang and Lacazette together or as substitutes, as quoted by the Daily Mirror.

Ozil's retirement from worldwide football came after he made claims of racism from the German football association.

All players on worldwide duty last week returned in good health and are available for selection, Arsenal said.

Ozil's decision to remove himself from worldwide selection with Germany means he has had time to rest and adapt to Emery's methods.

'He is feeling like I am feeling.

Following talks over the global break, Emery claims the two are getting on and have a good working relationship.

"We are continuing our process with our positive things and our work".

Mesut Ozil started out on the wing at Cardiff and he's enjoyed some rest during the global break after retiring from worldwide duty so I expect him to keep his place ahead of Henrikh Mkhitaryan in attack. I don't know any other news from him'.
