Mesut Ozil OUT of Arsenal's FA Cup final with Chelsea after flying to Turkey
MESUT OZIL is OUT of today's FA Cup final with Chelsea after flying to Turkey.
The German hasn't even featured on the Gunners' bench since the 2-0 victory over Southampton on June 25.
And there will be no return to action against the Blues at Wembley.
Sky Sports state that Ozil is not in the club's match squad and was given permission by Mikel Arteta to leave the country.
A back issue has been the official reason for the 31-year-old's absences of late.
Prior to English football's restart, Ozil had started every single Premier League match under Mikel Arteta.
But the German World Cup winner has found himself frozen out since.
Fenerbahce have been linked with the star, who has one year remaining on his £350,000-a-week contract at the Emirates.
But according to his agent Erkut Sogut, he is "90 per cent" likely to remain in North London until 2021.

Sogut told futblogiant: "I do not think there will be a change in the case of Mesut Ozil until the summer of 2021.
"He has a contract. There is no change. He will remain in Arsenal.
"Ninety per cent [he] will leave Arsenal in 2021. Mesut to Asia, America or Turkey? Yes, maybe."
Another Gunner that will not feature in tomorrow's match is out-of-favour outcast Matteo Guendouzi.
The fiery Frenchman has been training alone since the 2-1 defeat to Brighton on June 20.
And Wheatley claims that Guendouzi, 21, will be sold this summer.
