Arsenal players are 'distancing themselves' from Mesut Ozil behind the scenes

But Sarri knows his side face a monumental test despite Arsenal's form tailing off, losing to West Ham last time out, and has been working on how to thwart their attacking potential.

Questions are being asked of whether Ozil - who hasn't started a game since the 3-1 win over Burnley on December 22 - has a future at Arsenal, let alone if he'll feature. We need to be patient with Emery and I think he will do very well at Arsenal.

The former Sevilla and Paris St-German boss isn't contended with the German's work-rate on the field of play, hence, he wants to cash-in on his signature before the end of the January transfer market.

Emery confirmed as much in his post-match press conference, where the Spaniard explained that he wants consistency from Ozil if he's going to start playing again.

"I want every player to give consistency. What is most important is how he can help us".

On their last meeting, which Chelsea won, he said, "That was a different match I think". I am thinking about how he can help us.

The same report says that Emery himself is "particularly keen" on signing the FC Barcelona man.

"He has helped us sometimes this year with good performances and others not good".

Ozil has fallen down the pecking order at Arsenal after failing to fit in under the Unai Emery regime at the Emirates so far this season. "After these two weeks working, maybe he can be okay for us".

Ozil's agent has sought to quash any suggestion that the German could be moved out of Arsenal during the January window.

The Chinese Super League side are willing to offer €10m per season in order to try and tempt Ozil to make the switch to Shanghai.
