Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has changed his agent but the Germany star has kept it in the family with his brother Mutlu replacing his father Mustafa as his advisor.

The 25-year-old has replaced his father with his sibling as chief executive officer of his agency Ozil Marketing GmbH.

In a statement, Ozil said the change had come after his September transfer from Real Madrid to Arsenal had meant "fundamental changes" in his situation.

His father negotiated his 50 million euros ($66 million) transfer to the Gunners and had advised his son since Ozil started his career at Schalke 04 in 2006.
