Watch: Mesut Ozil soaks up London sunshine ahead of Arsenal return
Mesut Ozil is back in the UK
Mesut Ozil seemed to be in good spirits over the weekend as he prepared for his return to training with Arsenal.
The playmaker had been given an extended summer break by the Gunners after his involvement in Euro 2016 with Germany.
The 27-year-old enjoyed a holiday in the United States before jetting back to England last week to turn his attentions back towards the Premier League.
And Ozil looked to be in good spirits as he enjoyed a stroll with some mates over the weekend amid the glorious summer weather in London.
Ozil posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Chilling out with my bros … #relax #Saturday #friends”
Ozil will be hoping to help Arsenal end their long wait for the Premier League title next season.
The Gunners – who kick off their title bid against Liverpool at The Emirates on Sunday – have not lifted the top flight trophy since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign.
