Ozil missed Arsenal’s 5-1 win over Fulham last weekend with back spasms, and following his retirement from international duty, has been recovering in London.
Ozil has now returned to full-contact training with his Arsenal teammates, and is therefore expected to be available for the club’s next Premier League game against Leicester City on October 22.
The 29-year-old has scored three times in eight appearances for the Gunners during the 2018-19 season.
Arsenal have won each of their last nine matches in all competitions, including their last six in the Premier League after starting the campaign with back-to-back defeats.
