Arsenal star Mesut Ozil is reportedly being investigated following allegations that he drove his car into a photographer.

The former Real Madrid player is alleged to have hit the man, who was attempting to take photographs, on the arm while driving in a posh north London suburb.

According to the Daily Star, the professional photographer said that the 43 million-pound midfielder then drove off without stopping, and the report mentioned that police has spoken with Ozil, who moved to the Emirates in a club-record deal last summer.

The report mentioned that the incident capped a miserable week for Ozil, who had come in for fierce criticism for missing a first-half penalty in Arsenal's Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich.

Ozil was subsequently left out of the Arsenal side which beat Sunderland 4-1 in the Premier League on Saturday, the report added.
