Mesut Ozil expresses his frustration with Arsenal's poor showings

Mesut Ozil believes Arsenal let themselves down this season.

Mesut Ozil's Arsenal future is looking increasingly uncertain, with the midfielder slamming his team-mates for throwing away their title chances over the 2015/16 season. 

The World Cup winner has already been linked with a move away from the Emirates this summer, having delayed contract talks until after European Championships, although there appears to be uncertainty as to whether he will extend his current two-year deal or choose to move on. 

Serie A giants Juventus are the latest club to be linked with the 27-year-old reported Gazzetta World, who expressed his disappointment at the club missing out on the title to Leicester City, with Claudio Ranieri's men finishing 10 points ahead of the second-placed Gunners. 

According to Metro, Ozil said: "We dropped a lot of points that we should not have dropped against the “smaller teams” and that was the point in the season where we did not work as a team.

"Especially after the Barcelona game, we were just not good enough to take a point."

It is not the first time Ozil, who contributed a league-high of 19 assists over the past season, has criticised his team-mates.

The beginning of April saw the playmaker upset boss Arsene Wenger by claiming his side had "mucked up" their title chances. 

It remains to be seen as to whether Ozil's latest tirade will strain their relationship further.
