The retired Wales international took aim at the German playmaker after it emerged he would be missing from the team in the club’s Premier League match against Brighton at home.
He did not feature in the 4-2 Europa League win over BATE Borisiov with Jack Wilshere taking his place as the chief creator among the forwards.
Manager Arsene Wenger turned to Alex Iwobi to come in and pull the strings alongside Alexis Sanchez and Alexandre Lacazette against the Seagulls.
Yet according to Savage Ozil should be nowhere near the team whether or not he is available to play.
“Even if he was fit, I don’t think he warrants a place in this Arsenal side,” said the former midfielder on BT Sport.
“You look at Lacazette, you look at Sanchez, Iwobi’s in. On current form I don’t think Ozil gets in this side, even if he’s 100% fit.”
The 28-year-old’s current Arsenal deal is set to run out in the summer of 2018 and he is yet to agree a new contract with the club.
He will be free to negotiate other offers in January with Inter reportedly interested in adding the midfielder to their ranks.
