Mesut Ozil has called on Arsene Wenger to invest in the Arsenal squad this summer, to stop the Gunners falling down the Premier League pecking order.

Arsenal are currently 11 points behind league leaders Leicester City and the German playmaker has warned that with Pep Guardiola heading to Manchester City next season, the Gunners "need reinforcements".

"We know that it will not be easy and that we need reinforcements if we want next season to be on top here again," he told Welt am Sonntag.

"It is again interesting to see who invests in who and how much the clubs do during the summer break.

"In addition, great coaches are coming into the league. I am thinking primarily of Pep Guardiola. Wherever he has been, he had success. He is a coach, keen on playing and his teams are feared.

"I wonder what he will do with Man City. He will be imprinting his football in England and people will be surprised."
