The Gunners have won eight games in a row, Özil has had a direct role in seven goals over his last nine games and even the media are starting to warm to the World Cup winner.
Football pundit Jamie Carragher lavished the 26-year-old with praise and Arsenal legend Roberto Pires called Özil one of the best players he has ever seen play.
Özil has been busy trying to keep his team, the fans and football pundits happy on the field and has now turned his attention to domestic matters.
The attacking midfielder informed his Instagram followers that he is on course for a family reunion today.
Özil shared a picture on his Instagram account driving his car to meet with his family – presumably in Germany.
The 26-year-old wrote the following caption alongside the picture, “On my way to pay a quick visit to my family… #happy #love #FamilyTime #ozil #özil.”
Özil was born in Germany into a Turkish family originating from Zonguldak in the northwester Black Sea region of Turkey.
