Robert Pires: 'Mesut Ozil frustrated over lack of Arsenal summer signings'

Robert Pires describes Mesut Ozil as "a warrior who wants to win something" but believes that the midfielder is frustrated by Arsenal's lack of summer signings.

Arsenal legend Robert Pires has claimed that Mesut Ozil is unhappy with Arsene Wenger for failing to significantly improve the Gunners squad.

The North Londoners broke their club record to sign Alexandre Lacazette for £52.7m this summer, but signing Sead Kolasinac on a free transfer was their only other first-team recruitment move.

Pires, who still trains regularly with Arsenal, stuck up for Ozil following criticism of the Germany playmaker for a number of below-par performances for the club.

"Ozil is a warrior who wants to win something," Pires told German publication Bild.

"To me, he seems so angry about the fact that Arsenal hasn't put together the team with which he can make a difference.

"They only spent money on Alexandre Lacazette. That's not enough to compete for the top spots."

Arsenal currently sit sixth in the Premier League table, having lost three of their opening eight games of the season.
