All the morning news from Arsenal FC this Wednesday.
Arsenal have an injury concern over their record signing Mesut Ozil this morning. The German international was on target for Die Mannschaft in a 5-2 win against the Swedes, in a game that saw Andre Schurrle of Germany score a hat-trick.
But Ozil did not play in the last 10 minutes. He went down the tunnel for treatment after being substituted for Julian Draxler. It has been reported as a bruised knee and in many blogs as ‘not serious’ but it could keep him out of the next Premier League game with Norwich City this weekend.
Another Arsenal player on target last night was Aaron Ramsey. The midfielder bagged a late equaliser for Wales in Brussels against their group winners Belgium. He ran on to an inch perfect pass from Craig Bellamy, before slotting the ball coolly underneath Chelsea stopper Thibaut Courtois, to claim an impressive away draw.
Park, who has barely had any impact since joining from AS Monaco, has lost his place in the South Korea side ahead of the FIFA World Cup and is desperate to secure a temporary spell away from The Emirates in order to win back his spot with the national team.
However a proposed move to Wigan is now said to be out of the question. The Championship side are said to be unwilling to pay his hefty wages, despite the Gunners offering to chip in and help to a degree.
Another Arsenal player who was on target in the international fixtures last night was youngster Serge Gnabry. The German talent was playing for his nations under-19 side against Scotland in Belarus.
Gnabry scored a 63rd minute equaliser for the Germans, a goal that secured them top spot in their qualifying group for the 2013 Under-19 European Championships.
