?When Arsenal's former decision-makers chose to offer  Mesut Özil a new contract worth £350k-a-week, a very dangerous precedent was set at Emirates Stadium.

The 33-year-old's decision has understandably left fans outraged, and Arsenal are now stuck between a rock and a hard place over how they deal with If they cancel the player's contract and allow him to leave on a free transfer, then  Koscielny's case will simply be the latest in a long line of abuses of player power.

There's no reason for those inside the club to be treading on eggshells just yet, but it's clear for all to see that Arsenal are just one or two unhappy stars away from going back to square one in their hopes of once again becoming a major player on European football's biggest stage.

As things stand, one of the Premier League's all-time best bromances don't look like they'll turn against those in charge anytime soon, but if they're pushed to the same lengths as  Chelsea Manchester United José Mourinho, Arsenal could quickly become one of the biggest laughing stocks in top-flight history.

The World Cup winner's arrival five years earlier sent a clear message that the Gunners could still compete with the best in the transfer market, being able to attract a household name from the biggest club on the planet to play alongside the likes of Yaya Nico Yennaris and Emiliano Viviano.

While if Arsenal hold onto their captain and a sufficient offer doesn't come in for him this summer, then everyone involved in the saga will come out on the losing side.

It set the wheels in motion which now sees  Arsenal  footing the bill of a title-winning side, but with players who will be lucky to finish inside a European qualification place next season.
