According to reports from Germany, Mesut Ozil has agreed a new deal with Arsenal, and an announcement could come as early as today.
It’s thought the new four year contract is worth around £300,000, making him the club’s top earner.
Signed from Real Madrid in 2013 for a then club record fee of £42.5m, the German’s decision to extend his contract comes as a real boost after the departure of Alexis Sanchez to Man Utd.
Arsenal will hope he can start pulling the strings with fellow creative midfielder Henrikh Myhitaryan, and new striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who is set to be unveiled as the club’s record signing today.
More on this as we get it, and obviously until things are official you remain a little cautious, but everything we’re hearing on this is positive, so fingers crossed.
