Arsenal are carefully ‘nursing‘ their star playmaker Mesut Ozil through a foot injury according to the Daily Mail newspaper.
The Germany international has been suffering with foot problem recently. Ozil missed the clash against Stoke City last month and has failed to provide an assist in his last four games.
The daily paper states that Arsenal are paying close attention to the former Real Madrid man in between games.

Ozil has also had his training schedule modified accordingly to reduce the risk of further injuries.
Arsenal dropped five points behind league leaders Leicester City after being held to a goalless draw against Southampton at the Emirates.
Ozil started for the Gunners but the leading assist provider in the league was unable to work his magic against the Saints. The Gunners are just two points above rivals Tottenham who sit in forth place.
The 27-year-old has 16 assists in the Premier League this season and is just four assists away from matching Henry’s record record tally of 20.
