Former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner has revealed outcast Mesut Ozil loved the London nightlife during his time at Arsenal.

The German playmaker moved to Arsenal in 2013 for a club-record £42.5million and Bendtner says he was the man to talk to if you wanted a night on the tiles in London.

Bendtner, who is writing about the time of Ozil’s arrival in 2013, says in new book Both Sides: “The Germans Lukas Podolski and Mesut Ozil have also joined.

“Ozil is a game distributor and should have been at odds with Real Madrid because he was partying too much. He denies that of course.

“On his second day at Arsenal, he visits me for training. ‘I hear you’re the go-to guy if you want to look around in the nightlife?’ It’s not entirely wrong’, I reply.

“Without going into detail you can safely say that there is something about the talk. Ozil is a bachelor, and during his first week in London we take the trip three times.

Ozil’s first season in north London (2013/14).

“He does not act crazy or particularly demanding when he is out, but he knows how to fire it. And like so many others, he loves ladies. No doubt about it.”

Bendtner made over 100 Premier League appearances for Arsenal and will go down in folklore for scoring the winner in the North London Derby in 2007.

The Denmark international was a product of the famous Gunners academy, making his debut in 2005 before a strong of loan moves. Arsene Wenger eventually lost patience and sanctioned a move on a permanent basis in 2014.
