Arsenal make huge breakthrough in contract talks with star man
Arsenal have made a big breakthrough in contract talks with Mesut Ozil, according to the Sun.
The German has reportedly dropped his wage demands and a deal could be done before the start of the Premier League season.
It is great news for Arsenal who were facing the prospect of losing their two best players this summer. Both Ozil and Alexis Sanchez have a year left on their current deals.
While Alexis looks more and more likely to leave, Ozil now looks set to stay and become the club’s top earner.
The deal will be for around £280k per week, according to the report – £70k per week less than he was demanding.
He is often criticised but there is no doubting his ability. When Arsenal are at their best is when Ozil is firing on all cylinders.
Even in an off season for him last year he had 12 goals and 12 assists last season for the Gunners.
