  • Mesut Ozil’s agent has hit out at Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to join Chelsea
  • Aubameyang, who spent four years at Arsenal, signed for the Blues in August
  • He left the Gunners in acrimonious circumstances seven months earlier
  • Ozil also left Arsenal a year earlier but would not play for England again
  • Agent Erkun Sogut dismissed it all saying his client ‘isn’t like Aubameyang’

Mesut Ozil’s agent has tipped Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to join Chelsea in the summer, insisting his client would not be joining one of Arsenal’s rivals like his former team-mate.

Ozil spent seven-and-a-half years at Arsenal before leaving in January 2021, registering 44 goals and 78 assists as he helped the north London club win three FA Cups.

His time at the Emirates ended on a sour note, however, with Mikel Arteta leaving the German midfielder out of his squad for the 2020-21 campaign before his contract was terminated six months early.

He has spent the last two years in Turkey, making 37 appearances for Fenerbahce and most recently signed for Istanbul Basaksehir in July.

In the time since his departure from Arsenal, Ozil, who underwent surgery on a back injury earlier this month, has been regularly linked with a return to the Premier League League with the likes of Newcastle and Aston Villa.

However, the player’s agent has ruled out a second spell in English football for his client, because he is “not like Aubameyang”.

“I could never play at another English club, he’s not like Aubameyang,” Erkun Sogut told Tribal Football.

“He loved his time at Arsenal and is still in touch with a lot of players, especially (Bukayo) Saka, who have a special relationship.”

Aubameyang shared a dressing room with Ozil at Arsenal for three years before the latter’s departure in January 2021.

The pair won the FA Cup together in 2019-20, while also reaching the 2018 League Cup final and the 2019 Europa League final.

A year after Ozil said goodbye to the club, Aubameyang followed suit, departing in acrimonious circumstances following a series of disciplinary infractions and a falling out with Arteta.

The Gabonese striker, who scored 92 goals in 163 games for Arsenal, moved to Barcelona on a free transfer in January this year, scoring 13 goals in 24 outings for the Spanish club before Chelsea came calling in summer.

After a difficult start, Aubameyang recently enjoyed a run of three goals in as many games for Graham Potter’s side.
