Arsenal stars out of squad after ‘further security incidents’

Arsenal's Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac, who were involved in an attempted carjacking by armed robbers, have been withdrawn from the squad as police investigate "further security incidents".

The two players were targeted last month as Ozil drove his black Mercedes in north London.

His car was boxed in by two attackers on a moped wearing helmets and brandishing knives.
