Mesut Ozil will be heading for the exit very soon as his contract at Emirates will end this summer and a renewal is highly unlikely. He could be possibly moving to Manchester United this summer for free and Arsenal needs to come up with alternatives to replace him in the squad. He is heavily linked to Mourinho and rumours suggest that he is confident about securing the move.

Mesut Ozil has been an invaluable asset for the Gunners from 2013 who has made 134 apps scoring 27 goals and providing 47 assists so far. He has been the major reason behind Arsenal's consistency to stay above in the league.

Let us explore few options whom Arsenal could sign as an ideal replacement for Ozil or perfect fit for a play-maker.

#5 Julian Draxler (PSG)

Draxler has a forward moving instinct always which can come in very handy for Arsenal

Another German to replace Ozil? Well, he has always been mentioned as a possible target for Arsenal. Arsene Wenger has always scouted on Draxler and did make tentative inquiries for him late in the summer transfer window.

Draxler who has fallen behind the names of Neymar, Mbappe will be eyeing an exit to get more playing time and establish himself as one of the best in his zone. He may not come to Arsenal with Ozil's quality of creating chances or providing so many assists but definitely will give a killer instinct up front. He has got pace and can be the best man to end Arsenal's woes for goals and more attacking football as Ozil and Sanchez both could be leaving Arsenal soon.
