Merson says Ozil should be brought back next month.
He told the Daily Star: “Arsenal could still be playing Tottenham NOW and they wouldn’t have scored a goal.
“What can they do in January to fix it? Go and knock on Mesut Ozil‘s door, say you’re sorry and you need him to play!
“Arsenal were atrocious against Spurs. They never looked like scoring. Ozil’s getting £350,000-a-week and sitting at home while his team can’t score.
“But against teams like Spurs or Burnley, he can get on the ball and dictate things and make a few decent chances.
“They could re-register him in January. They’re missing a trick if they don’t.”
