The World Cup winner has already had a busy summer which has seen him visit his home town of Gelsenkirchen and interview Germany national team manager Joachim Lowe.

The 26-year-old had an impressive 2015 after returning from a three-month spell on the sidelines.

Özil won the FA Cup for the second year running and the 2014 World Cup in-between.

The Arsenal star did not get a summer break last season due to the World Cup and suffered fitness wise at the start of the 2014-15 league campaign.

Özil is expected to start the new season in better condition considering he has had time to recover.
