The playmaker has been in sublime form for Arsenal so far this season and inspired Arsene Wenger’s men to a 2-0 win over Bournemouth on Monday night by scoring one and setting up the other at Emirates Stadium.
Ozil has now notched up 16 Premier League assists for Arsene Wenger’s men to help them move to the top of the Premier League table and above Leicester City on goal difference after the Foxes drew 0-0 with Manchester City on Tuesday.
And the 27-year-old’s home town clearly holds a special place in his heart.
Ozil shared the picture above on his personal Instagram account on Tuesday evening and wrote: “Where it all began. #ozil #mesutözil #mesutozil #özil #affenkäfig #gelsenkirchen”
World Cup winner Ozil will be expecting to feature when Arsenal return to Premier League action with a home clash against Newcastle United at Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
