Mesut Ozil has returned to the Arsenal squad after an extended holiday following his World Cup exploits with Germany.

The 29-year-old was given two weeks off following a disappointing summer in Russia, but the midfielder has now returned ahead of the Gunners’ trip to the Far East.

Ozil was pictured alongside Mohamed Elneny on the private jet, with the Egyptian ace also making his return after international duty.

Unai Emery is taking a relatively inexperienced squad on tour with several academy graduates such as Reiss Nelson, Joe Willock, Eddie Nketiah and Jordi Osei-Tutu making the cut.

There was also pleasant surprise for Arsenal fans as Lucas Perez was included in the party, having found chances limited at the Emirates since arriving in 2016.
