Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has revealed he cannot rule out a return to the Bundesliga in the future.
“I don’t want to exclude that,” he told SportBild.
“Many family members – my mother especially – would welcome it if I were closer to home.”
The Germany international’s contract at Arsenal expires next year, along with a host of other Gunners, and he has yet to confirm or deny whether he will stay.
“I still have a year on my contract and I love running for this club. At the moment, everything is still open,” Ozil added.
