Ozil has only played seven minutes from the Gunners last six games in all competitions as a result of his injury.
The playmaker of Turkish origin does appear to have made a full recovery.
Ozil shared a video on his Instagram page doing keepie-uppies with his dog Balboa who he called ‘BALLboa’ – get it, ball-boa.

The 28-year-old wrote that he is looking forward to Saturday’s game in his caption, signalling he is ready.
The Gunners take on Watford at Vicarage Road and Ozil is expected to make the squad.
Ozil has yet to score or provide an assist in all competitions this season and has yet to sort out his contract situation. The playmaker has under 12 months remaining on his current deal but has not reached a new agreement.
