Bellerin is seen by Unai Emery as a key cog for his team due to his pace and ability to get into quality positions. The defender Is regarded by fans as a cult hero and a player that puts his best for the team. French forward Alexandre Lacazette is also back from injury with the Gunners getting closer to a healthy team.

There have been rumours abounding that a number of clubs are willing to sign the player this summer. The likes of Inter Milan and Borussia Dortmund and are thought to be in negotiations regarding a transfer in January.
Emery has regularly left the German out of the team which infuriates Arsenal fans as he is the highest-paid player on the team. It remains to be seen whether Ozil still has a chance this season to impress Emery.
