Arsenal will be boosted after Mesut Ozil revealed his intentions to remain at the Emirates despite recently being criticized for his poor form, according to reports from the Metro.
The 26-year-old completed a £42.5million move from Real Madrid in 2013, but was unable to replicate the form which saw him excel at the La Liga club.
In addition to his decline in form, Ozil suffered a major injury setback in his second season at the club, causing him to miss a large number of matches, halting his development even further.
Despite being blasted by supporters, Ozil admits that he has nothing to prove as he is still seen as a regular first team player by Arsene Wenger.
“I don’t need to prove them anything. But it is correct that I have to work harder to reach my goals,” he said.
When asked about a possible departure, the German World Cup winner revealed that he was very happy at the Emirates and is not looking to leave anytime soon.
“A return to Germany is not an option for me right now. I am really happy at Arsenal and I want this to continue.
“I played in the Bundesliga and at Real Madrid. But the English Premier League is the strongest league in the world. Opponents never give up.”
Following his move from Spain, the attacking midfielder has scored eight league goals and provided a further 15 assists.
