3 Arsenal stars that could thrive after this summer’s World Cup

Mesut Ozil

The German World Cup winner has attracted plenty of criticism during his past five years at Arsenal but set a record last weekend by securing his 50th Premier League assist for the Gunners in the 3-0 victory over Watford- and he’s shown upturns in form alongside Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Ozil signed a new long-term contract in February and is now an established member of the Gunners’ ranks, which brings more leadership qualities to his game. With a strong World Cup under his belt, Ozil could kick into greater things next season.
