Huge news for Arsenal: Gunners’ star man “definitely” wants to stay at the club
Mesut Ozil has said that he “defintely” wants to stay at Arsenal.
Speaking during Arsenal’s tour of Australia he said: “It is definitely my preference to stay, it is such a great club and I have always said that I feel very good at Arsenal.
“Once everyone is back in London we will sit down and discuss about the future.”
It will come as a huge boost to Arsenal who are facing the prospect of losing Ozil as well as Alexis Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain this summer.
All three have deals that expire at the end of next season and could then leave on a free if no deals are signed.
Arsenal are thought to have offered Ozil £250,000 per week.
The German wants £100,000 more than that but it appears as though a deal may be getting closer.
Ozil is often criticised but there is no doubt that when Arsenal are playing their best football is when he is at the top of his game.
He is so important to the way Arsenal play and his link up with Alexandre Lacazette is a very exciting prospect for the year to come.
Hopefully a deal can be done soon and we can see his majestic play at the Emirates for years to come.
