Mesut Ozil has taken to social media to reveal that he is feeling fit and well as Arsenal prepare for their Premier League clash with Swansea this weekend.

The Germany international has not featured for the Gunners yet this year after suffering from a bout of flu over the Christmas period.

Ozil’s most recent appearance for Arsenal came during the 1-0 win over West Brom at The Emirates on Boxing Day.

The 28-year-old will be hoping to make his comeback when the Gunners travel to the Liberty Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

And the playmaker revealed his delight at being able to enjoy some downtime with his family during the last few days.

Ozil posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “Always wonderful having my family around me in #London 👍😉 #qualitytime #familyfirst #familyovereverything”
