Want-away Arsenal star Mesut Ozil has become the first Premier League player to hit twenty million followers on Twitter.

The Germany midfielder, whose contract expires next summer, is a social media phenomenon.

Ozil now has 31 million Facebook followers, 14.7 million Instagram followers and 20 million Twitter followers giving him a combined social media following of 65 million.

The 29-year-old has by far the biggest social media following in the Premier League and recently overtook Wayne Rooney.

The pair were neck and neck with over 14 million followers early this year, but Ozil’s popularity has exploded with his future in doubt and has seen his followers climb by six million followers.
