Arsenal fans fear star man is off after ‘waving goodbye’ against Cardiff

Mesut Ozil sent Arsenal fans into meltdown on Twitter after appearing to wave goodbye to the Emirates crowd against Cardiff City.

The midfielder, who captained the Gunners, was withdrawn with 15 minutes left to go for Juventus-bound Aaron Ramsey.

And before handing the Wales international the armband, fans are fearful that Ozil waved goodbye to the crowd.

Ivan Perisic has been linked with a move to the Gunners and there are rumours that the former Real Madrid man will be used as a makeweight in the deal.

However, according to the Daily Star, the Serie A side want Arsenal to pay half of his wages.

Arsenal broke the deadlock against Cardiff from the penalty spot after Bruno Ecuele Manga fouled Sead Kolasinac, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang converting from 12 yards.

With Ramsey on in place of Ozil, the hosts grabbed a second thanks to Alexandre Lacazette.

Cardiff did manage to score through Nathaniel Mendez-Laing, although it proved to be little more than a consolation as the hosts sealed a 2-1 win.

Check out what Arsenal fans had to say about Ozil’s apparent wave goodbye on Tuesday evening.
