The north London outfit have confirmed the pair are safe after they were the victims of an attack by a gang of assailants on motorbikes

Arsenal stars Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac are both safe after being attacked by would-be carjackers in London.

Ozil was driving his black Mercedes G Class 4×4 near Golders Green Road when he was boxed in by scooter-gang reportedly armed with knives.
The Arsenal playmaker then fled his car to take shelter in a nearby Turkish restaurant called Likya, while Kolasinac, seated in the passenger’s seat, appeared to fight some of the attackers.

A video that has surfaced on social media of the incident appears to show Bosnia-Herzegovina international Kolasinac scuffle with one helmet-clad assailant and then, as the car pulls away, he charges another.
The remainder of the assailants fled empty-handed after staff from the restaurant came to the aid of Ozil and Kolasinac.
Police soon arrived at the scene, blocking off the road to search for the assailants.
Both players avoided injury and did not need medical treatment, with Arsenal providing a statement to Goal saying: “We have been in contact with both players and they are fine.”
The Arsenal duo both provided statements to police, and then departed the scene.
