Ozil Throw

Arsenal's Mesut Ozil was a participant in training for Germany on Monday.

Arsenal record signing Mesut Ozil was a full participant in training for Germany on Monday.

The German international missed Arsenal's 2-1 win over Newcastle at the weekend through illness.

It certainly seemed as though he had recovered soon after the game however, with German newspaper BILD confirming he was spotted in a nightclub in Berlin on Saturday evening.

They described him as having only a 'slight cold', and is expected to feature in this week's international friendly against Australia.

Ozil was pictured in training with former Real Madrid teammate Sami Khedira, whose future still remains unclear with his contract set to expire this summer.

The Arsenal star was joined in the squad by loanee Lukas Podolski, who has been called up despite being yet to score a goal for Inter Milan since joining in early January.
