Mesut Ozil is back in Arsenal training ahead of key Premier League fixtures against Liverpool and Tottenham.

The midfielder is yet to feature this season after being the victim of an attempted carjacking alongside teammate Sead Kolasinac last month.

Arsenal said the pair were unavailable to face Newcastle on the opening day of the season due to "further security incidents" while Ozil missed the victory over Burnley on Saturday because of illness.

However, the former Germany international was pictured back in training on Wednesday, suggesting that he could feature in the upcoming games against Champions League winners Liverpool and north London rivals Tottenham.

Sources told ESPN FC earlier this month that Ozil's representatives would hold talks with D.C. United about a potential move to Major League Soccer.

One source added that any deal involving Ozil would occur during the January transfer window, which coincides with the MLS offseason.
