The 27-year-old playmaker uploaded a video of himself learning how to say ‘Happy New Year’ in Chinese.
Ozil included the following caption along with the video, “I like the Chinese language … but it’s not so easy to pronounce Happy Chinese New Year! #YearOfTheMonkey.”
Ozil was born in 1988, the year of the dragon, meaning he is lucky, flexible, eccentric, imaginative, artistic, spiritual and charismatic.
The Germany international’s tweet received over 4,000 retweets and 6,000. A few supporters took a more anxious view-point by linking his post with a money-spinning move to China.
Ozil now has six goals in all competitions this season and has provided 16 assists in the Premier League.
Arsenal kept their 22 unbeaten streak against Bournemouth following the win on Sunday. The Gunners takes on league leaders Leicester Ciy this weekend.
