Mesut Ozil expects Arsenal to face more competition next season as more high profile managers join the Premier League.
Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola will leave the German giants to take over Manchester City over the summer and Jose Mourinho is also likely to take over a top-tier club.
Ozil was quoted by the Guardian as saying: “It is again interesting to see who invests in who and how much the clubs do during the summer break. In addition, great coaches are coming into the league. I am thinking primarily of Pep Guardiola. Wherever he has been, he had success.”
Arsenal’s traditional rivals such as reigning champions Chelsea and Manchester United have all struggled this season but will be expected to be improve next season.
Despite the likes of Chelsea, United and Manchester City underperforming the Gunners are still 11 points behind league leaders Leicester City.
The Gunners do however, have a game in hand and will close the gap with the Foxes to eight points with a victory over Watford at the Emirates on Saturday.
Ozil is expected to stay at Arsenal next season but has also been linked with a move to Spanish giants Barcelona over the past week.
