Mesut Ozil gave Arsenal supporters a glimpse into his childhood with a throwback snap on Thursday afternoon.

The 27-year-old is one of the biggest stars in the Premier League following his £42.5m move to the Gunners from Real Madrid in August 2013.

Ozil has enjoyed his best season in the Premier League to date after a return of six goals and 18 assists in 34 top-flight appearances this season.

The Germany international will be aiming to add to that tally against Aston Villa if he recover from a recent injury setback to play Arsenal’s final game of the Premier League season at the Emirates Stadium.

And the World Cup winner posted the above photo on his Instagram page and wrote:

Ozil has won two FA Cups with the north London side since his club-record move to the Emirates Stadium in 2013.
