Mesut Özil and Arsenal are close to agreeing a deal which would see the German receive upwards of £200,000 per week. Özil and the club have reportedly been in negotiations for months but reports indicate that things are close to completion (via The Mirror).
He’s one of the best player the club has had in years and Mesut Özil looks set to become by far the highest paid player in the club’s history. He’s already the top earner in the Gunners team but reports indicate that he is set to agree a new deal which would see his wages skyrocket.
The German and his representatives have reportedly been holding talks with the club over the international break and Arsenal are confident that the player is happy to stay in North London. Özil has already reportedly bought a new house in London and all signs indicate that he is close to pledging his long-term future to the club.
It’s good news for Arsenal fans who must have been fearing the worst. Özil has just over 18 months left on his current deal and has been linked both with moves to former club Real Madrid as well as to Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United.
It’s excellent news for Arsenal fans that the club is close to securing the long-term future of the German. Özil has been in excellent form this season and definitely deserves to earn as much as the best players in the world because, on current form, he’s one of them.
