Thierry Henry believes that Mesut Ozil needs to step his game up and be more consistent for Arsenal.

The Germany playmaker is widely regarded as one of the Premier League’s top attacking talents but he has often been criticised for failing to produce consistent displays for the north London side.

Ozil is usually one of the first names on the team-sheet at The Emirates but it remains to be seen whether he will stay at Arsenal beyond the summer transfer window.

His contract with the Gunners is due to expire next summer and he knows that Arsenal will not be playing in the Champions League next season.

Arsenal legend Henry is a huge fan of Ozil and rates him as one of the best attacking talents in Europe.

However, the Premier League icon concedes that Ozil will need to start producing his best form on a more regular basis for Wenger’s side.

Speaking on Sky Sports News HQ on Monday, Henry said: “When he is on tune and at the top of his game, there is no-one like him in terms of vision and passing.

“Why doesn’t he do it every weekend? I don’t know. He is going to have to do it.”
