Unai Emery has told Mesut Ozil that he wants to see more from the playmaker in an Arsenal shirt this season.

The German attacker is currently getting used to life under the new manager at The Emirates as he looks to try and find his best form this season for the Gunners.

Ozil has been regularly criticised for failing to produce consistent performances for the north London side since his big-money move to Arsenal from Real Madrid back in the summer of 2015.

Emery will be hoping to get the best out of Ozil this season after the German attacker signed a new contract with the Gunners back in February.

Ozil is in contention to start when Arsenal head to Newcastle United in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

And the Arsenal manager has outlined some of the improvements that he wants to see from Ozil in the coming weeks and months.

Emery is quoted as saying by Metro: “I want to find with him the possibility to do the best, to make decisive passes, to do more near and in the box to score.

“Also I think he is working for the team to help us with his quality. But he is feeling like I am feeling. He can improve, he can do more.

“In this process, we will work, we will help him, give him the possibility on the pitch to be together, to find his qualities for us.”

Arsenal are looking to make it three wins in a row in the Premier League when they travel to Newcastle United this weekend.

The north London side have sealed back to back wins over West Ham and Cardiff in their last two outings in the top flight.
