Mesut Ozil trains with Arsenal for first time since ‘getting caught up in gang war’

Mesut Ozil has been seen training with Arsenal for the first time since getting caught up in a London gang war along with teammate Sead Kolasinac.

Ozil has not featured for Arsenal this season amid concerns for his safety following a dramatic carjacking last month.

Kolasinac and Ozil were involved in a car chase after they were targeted by the yobs in north London.

It has since reportedly spiralled into a full on feud between the muggers and a rival gang of Eastern Europeans.

Dani Ceballos has taken his place as police continue to investigate to attack on Ozil and Kolasinac.
