German publication, Bild has claimed that Mesut Ozil will soon renew his Arsenal contract (via Sport Witness).
Arsenal fans would be forgiven for thinking this would never happen, especially after last night’s performance.
Despite that, reports in Germany suggest that Mesut Ozil will renew his contract and remain at Arsenal.
The reports come from Bild and claim that the German playmaker is pleased with Arsenal’s business in the window with the signings of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan acting very much as the catalyst for this decision.
The former Real Madrid man’s current deal expires in the summer and after Alexis Sanchez’s switch to Manchester United, many Arsenal fans feared the same for Ozil.
- Arsenal prepare loan offer for striker with two goals in 32 games
- Ex-Arsenal boss Unai Emery set to become next Newcastle manager
- ‘Unhappy’ Arsenal striker will only stay if one promise is met
The German is a key player at the club and has been ever since his 2013 arrival from Spain.
Let’s hope these reports are true because Arsenal need to keep hold of their star man. The Gunners just don’t look like the same team when Ozil isn’t in it and, hopefully, we’ll see a marked upturn in form once these new signings have embedded in.
