Ozil jokes about new job with Roma as Arsenal exile continues

Mesut Ozil has joked that he can't wait to join up with Francesco Totti at Roma after reports saw the Arsenal man linked with an off the pitch move to Serie A.

The German has been left out in the cold by Mikel Arteta after being excluded from both Arsenal's Premier League and Europa League squads.

It's a huge fall from grace for the former Real Madrid man who only signed a new, mega-money contract in 2018.

Despite Arteta's decision, Ozil has vowed to fight for his place at Arsenal and is determined to make his way back in to the starting XI.

But naturally, with the January transfer window looming, the 32-year-old has been linked with a move away.

And one such report has gone a step further, by claiming Ozil's next career move will actually be off the pitch.

It's stated that Ozil could actually go on to become a social media influencer after he live-tweeted Arsenal's Europa League clash against Rapid Wien.

It's added, probably in jest, that he could even go on to become Roma's new Twitter admin. The account is famed for it's brilliant posts and interactive nature with fans.

And, naturally, the English Roma account quote-tweeted the report with "Welcome @MesutOzil1088."

Taking it in good grace, Ozil replied with: "Grazie Roma – I think Totti and me could make a great duo."
