Arsenal fans desperate for Ozil to sign new contract

Alexis Sanchez’s form has been pretty dire this season as the Chilean prepares to run down his contract with Arsenal before leaving the club on a free transfer.

The majority of Arsenal fans seem to have accepted that Sanchez will leave, but the situation surrounding a certain Mesut Ozil is a little bit more complicated.

Ozil, who is valued at £45m by transfermarkt.co.uk, has been impressive for the Gunners in recent weeks, and he scored the only goal of the match in the team’s 1-0 win over Newcastle United in the Premier League last weekend.

Manchester United have been strongly linked with the German international, but it does appear that he could yet sign a new contract at the Emirates Stadium.

Ozil, like a number of his teammates, paid tribute to the retiring Tomas Rosicky on Wednesday with a message on his Twitter account.

As expected, the talk among Arsenal fans was whether Ozil would indeed sign a new contract with the Gunners.

He has been urged to do so by a number of the club’s supporters, but it seems that an awful lot still has to fall into place for that situation to occur.
