Former Germany midfielder Ozil and the Bosnia defender were targeted last month by masked and armed attackers who chased their auto through London.

While that may have been the case on the day, it seems the incident is far from over.

Kolasinac's wife has fled to Germany because of the terrifying threats, the Sun on Sunday reported.

However, the thugs issued more threats to the Arsenal players and refused to be cowed.

Arsenal head coach Unai Emery has admitted that he is not sure if Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac will feature in next week's Premier League clash with Burnley.

The London gang are said to have considered the Eastern Europeans' warning as an effort to intimidate them, deciding to respond by become even more violent.

London's Metropolitan Police said two men had been arrested in an incident in the north of the city three days ago.

Neither midfielder Ozil, 30, nor defender Kolasinac, 26, were harmed.

A report on Saturday by Goal stated that two men were arrested outside of Ozil's home on Thursday night in connection to different incidents which led to the decision to withdraw the players from the weekend's squad.

They are due to appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court on September 6.

After the failed carjacking attempt in Golders Green in July, Kolasinac posted a picture of himself and Ozil on social media and added: "Think we're fine".

Police are now investigating the incident after two arrested men were picked up outside of Ozil's house in London when they came to confront him.

A club statement released by Arsenal on Friday said the welfare of the club's players and their families "is always a top priority".

'We are liaising with the police and are providing the players and their families with ongoing support. "We want to be with them as soon as possible, with normality in training and normality to be ready to play".
