Mesut Ozil enjoyed some downtime with his baby niece Lina ahead of Arsenal's clash with Crystal Palace
Mesut Ozil looked to be enjoying taking some time away from Arsenal last week as he relaxed with his niece Lina.
The Arsenal playmaker has been preparing for the north London side’s Premier League clash with Crystal Palace at The Emirates on New Year’s Day as he looks to help the Gunners kick 2017 off with a win.
Ozil has been in good form for Arsene Wenger’s men so far this season, scoring nine goals and making six assists in all competitions for the Gunners.
However, the 28-year-old looked pleased to be taking his mind off football as he spent some downtime with his niece Lina ahead of Arsenal’s clash with Crystal Palace.
Ozil posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “❤️Lina”
Arsenal finished second in the Premier League and without a trophy last season as Wenger’s men ended up 10 points behind champions Leicester City.
The Gunners have not won the Premier League since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 season.
