Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Mesut Özil’s return from injury is imminent.

Wenger spoke at a post match press conference following his sides 2-1 victory over West Ham.

“We have Mesut Özil coming back at the beginning of January so of course there’s a lot of competition for places,” Wenger stated.

Özil has not featured for the Arsenal since damaging his knee ligaments during a 2-0 defeat to Chelsea in October.

The Arsenal playmaker has made two assists and scored one goal in nine appearances for the North-London based club this season.

Özil joined Arsenal for a record £42.5 million transfer fee from Real Madrid last season.

The 26-year-old became the first player of Turkish origin to lift the World Cup with Germany this summer.
