Mesut Ozil has named just one Arsenal player in his dream team-mate XI, with the line-up featuring numerous stars from Real Madrid.

The 31-year-old undertook a question and answer session on Twitter this week, with one of the questions posed asking him to detail a starting line-up of players who he has played with.

No less than eight Real Madrid players made the cut; Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Marcelo, Xabi Alonso, Angel Di Maria, Kaka, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Karim Benzema.

Two German compatriots made the cut in Philipp Lahm and Jerome Boateng, while the lone selection from Arsenal was Santi Cazorla.

Ozil - Football tactics and formations

Ozil is currently Arsenal's highest earning player on a reported £350,000 per week at the Emirates Stadium.

However, since the appointment of Mikael Arteta as the new head coach he has been on the periphery of the starting XI and has on occasion not even made the matchday squad.

The Gunners have attempted to sell Ozil to get him off the wage bill, but the high salary is putting potential suitors off.

The player himself has stated his intention to see out the remaining two years of his contract.
