Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil is waiting to make his return and help his team after missing three months of football due to a knee injury.

The German international has hardly featured this term and is keen to get back on the pitch and spur on the Gunners and is also looking forward to contributing for his country's European qualifier matches in the coming months.

Ozil, who is Arsenal's club-record signing, was injured during the north London club's loss against Chelsea and prior to that had come in for some heavy criticism for his lack of impact in games.

Arsene Wenger will be glad to see his star midfielder return, as he will hope that his return will turn the fortunes around for Arsenal, who are struggling to get a good run going to keep pace with their rivals for a place in the top four.

The former Real Madrid player has revealed that he has worked hard during his time on the sidelines and admits that it was frustrating to watch Arsenal from the stands and not help his teammates.

"I worked hard, with Klaus Eder in Donaustauf and with Arsenal, and I want to finally return to the field. Watching [Arsenal whilst being] injured has been very bitter for me," Ozil said, as quoted by the Express.

"I really want to help my teams catch up. Arsenal and the national team."

"In the Premier League anything can happen. A lot can also happen in the Champions League, and we [Germany] are still involved in the European Championship qualifiers, where we need to score," the World Cup winning midfielder added.

Following the Emirates Stadium outfit's disappointing loss at St Mary's on New Year's day, the manager revealed that Ozil could have a chance to feature against Hull City in the FA Cup on Sunday.
