Mesut Ozil has taken to social media to thank Arsenal fans for voting him as the club’s player of the season.

The Germany playmaker was one of the Premier League’s standout performers this season and notched up 19 assists for his Arsenal team-mates in the top flight.

Ozil’s fine form helped Arsenal challenge for the Premier League title in the first half of the season, before the north London side fell off the pace after the turn of the year.

Ozil notched up 20 assists in all competitions, scoring eight goals in 45 games for the north London side.

And the 27-year-old was clearly thrilled to be recognised by Arsenal’s fans after a sparkling campaign for the playmaker.

Ozil posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Thanks to all fans for voting me as @Arsenal Player of the Season! That’s really a big honour and motivation for my daily work… #YaGunnersYa #AFC”
