Two Men Arrested After Security Scare Outside Mesut Ozil's House

Two Men Arrested After Security Scare Outside Mesut Ozil's House

Former Germany midfielder Ozil and the Bosnia defender were targeted last month by masked and armed attackers who chased their auto through London.

The pair were also left out of yesterday's squad for Arsenal's first match of the season at Newcastle yesterday following "security incidents".

"It was thought that originally the robbers wanted their watches but now they have been told that they want everything the pair have".

Thus, the situation has got so serious that Ozil and Kolasinac have not travelled with the Gunners to Newcastle for their opening Premier League game. The two were driving in London when two mopeds pulled up alongside the auto and tried to rob them.

Unai Emery has made amends with the German, but that doesn't mean, Ozil would remain at the club, should a good deal come by for the midfielder.

Kolasinac, a no-nonsense 6ft Bosnian global, was born in Germany to refugee parents who fled the hardships of the war in their Balkan homeland.

Police said that they were treating the public order offence and the attempted carjacking as separate incidents.

Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac were recently attempted to be robbed by two thugs, as footage emerged showed that two men with knives were trying to threat both players and their wives.

Ferhat Ercan, of Highgate, and Salaman Ekinci, of Tottenham, are due before magistrates in Highbury next month following an incident in Camden on August 8.

Incidents are also said to have taken place outside Kolasinac's £8million home.

"The welfare of our players and their families is always a top priority and we have taken this decision following discussion with the players and their representatives", Arsenal said in a statement Friday.

Arsenal's statement, relayed by Goal's Charles Watts, continued: "We are liaising with the police and are providing the players and their families with ongoing support".

You couple that with a potential move to the United States of America and all of a sudden it does not look to far fetched that Ozil could be on his way out of Arsenal far sooner than most of us anticipated.
