Germany need Mario Gomez for Euro 2016 says Arsenal star Mesut Ozil

during the UEFA Champions League final match between Borussia Dortmund and FC Bayern Muenchen at Wembley Stadium on May 25, 2013 in London, United Kingdom.

Arsenal star Mesut Ozil has revealed that the Germany national team could really do with having Besiktas striker Mario Gomez in the Euro 2016 team.

Gomez received a call up from Joachim Low for the England and Italy games. The experienced striker scored against England – his first goal for Germany since 2012 – but was unable to prevent a 3-2 defeat.

Ozil told Fanatik: “We really need a striker like Mario Gomez in the European Championship side he would be a major boost.”

The 30 year old striker is currently the top scorer in the Turkish Super League having hit the back of the net 21 times already for the league leaders.

The experienced striker joined the Black Eagles on a two-year loan from Fiorentina over the summer and has established himself as one of the most influential players in the league already.

Gomez has managed to attract interest from the Premier League following his impressive run for Besiktas and earned himself a recall to the Germany national team.

Besiktas take on Kasimpasa next in the mini-Istanbul derby on Monday 4 April.
