Wenger confident Arsenal ready for Boro battle

Petr Cech has eight clean-sheets in the Premier League this season

Petr Cech has eight clean-sheets in the Premier League this season

"It kills me to say this as an Arsenal fan, but my old club are not an attractive destination any more for the top, top players", he wrote in his column for The Sun. Where are your priorities, where do you want to play?

A World Cup victor in 2014 with Germany, Ozil joined Arsenal from Real Madrid the previous year and insists nothing could have prepared him for the physicality of England's top flight, along with some underhand tactics from opponents.

Even the latter seems a daunting challenge for them as they lie seven points off fourth following a string of poor results.

Manchester City and Chelsea have both been strongly linked with the Arsenal player, but L'Equipe believe PSG stand a good chance.

It was unlikely for Arsenal to make the Champions League before their loss to Crystal Palace and after losing it looks like they have almost no chance. He is a guy who is genuinely Arsenal and wants to do well.

"His ankle has healed but I think for a while the injury affected him".

"You ask again. Don't worry, you will get that soon".

Additionally, rumours are picking up pace that Wenger has made a decision to stay at the Emirates and that could mean Ozil signs a new deal and gives it at least one more year at the club. "He put me in at a young age which you don't see a lot at top clubs with all the pressure for trophies".

Also, the host has tendencies of low scoring games, especially at home, while Arsenal has troubles scoring on the road lately.

Former Arsenal winger Marc Overmars, now director of football at Ajax Amsterdam, has been widely tipped for the role but Wenger said he was not aware of the reports. If they don't end the season in one of the first four spots, fans voices that are against the idea that Arsene Wenger should be the team's head coach next year will get much louder and his departure will become more certain.

Top four is not completely out of the equation yet, but another defeat would be hugely damaging for Arsenal. You make big money in England as well.

"I can not confirm that we have offered that", he told his pre-Middlesbrough news conference on Friday (watch from 12:50 on the video above). "So China, for me, is not a debate". "At the moment we have other priorities and the priorities are to focus on the game against Middlesborough".
