Arsenal has received a huge bomb of positive news after Mesut Ozil revealed his desire to continue wearing the jersey of the English Premier League club at least for another season.
The contract that the German midfielder has with Arsenal extends until December of 2018 but reports were emerging suggesting that a move away from the Emirates Stadium was a realistic outcome but Ozil has shut those rumors down as he unveiled his intention to stay with the ¨The Gunners¨
“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. For now, the most important thing is our pre-season and getting through the tour, training and getting fitness. When I’m back in London, we will sit down and discuss.”
Mesut Ozil is one of the most influential and impactful players in the squad of Arsene Wenger. Securing his services at the club for the foreseeable future is a colossal boost for Arsenal as the German midfielder is one of the most highly-rated playmakers in Europe.
Ever since Ozil joined Arsenal back on September of 2013, he has been a regular starter in almost every single season managing to make over 25 appearances. £42.5 million was the fee that Arsenal splashed out in order to lure Mesut Ozil to the Emirates Stadium when that transfer was completed, it shocked many people as Arsene Wenger is not a manager who is known for dishing out major amounts of cash for a player.
£42.5 million is a huge price tag for a club like Arsenal to offload in a player but Mesut Ozil is definitely a performer that is worth that fee.
