Mesut Ozil reveals why he’s staying at Arsenal next season

Former Germany and Arsenal star midfielder Mesut Ozil has revealed his plans to continue lacing his boots for club, per reports.

Ozil arrived Arsenal in the summer of 2013 from Real Madrid with a high pedigree and a record fee. Although he has helped Arsenal to win some FA Cup titles, the midfielder has divided opinion among fans and pundits over his poor form.

He was out favour under Unai Emery midway through the season but he has staked a claim in the first team of the Gunners squad. He has been a regular feature for the North London since April and he played a huge role in Arsenal’s qualification for the Europa League final.

The 30-year-old star is the biggest earner at Arsenal but it is widely suggested that he should be sold in order to make more funds available for players wages.

Unai Emery is believed to have a list of players on sale list, with the former Real Madrid man included. However, Ozil plans to stay put at Arsenal.

“I don’t think there’s a chance of that to be honest,” Ozil said, as quoted by Goal.

“I’ve got two more years here and what happens afterwards is not in my hands. We’ll see then, but I’m proud to be at this club and really happy at this club.”

Ozil did better at Arsenal with Alexis Sanchez. His quality is never in doubt but Emery is yet to unlock his genius.
