Arsenal hopeful of securing World Cup winner on £180,000 a week deal

Arsenal are confident of securing Mesut Ozil down to a long term deal amid reports he could leave for Barcelona, report the Daily Telegraph.

The superstar playmaker has been in sensational form this season, recording 16 assists as the Gunners bid for the title.

Despite struggling initially following a £42.5m move from Real Madrid, the World Cup winner has since found his best form.

As a result, the North London giants reportedly offered him fresh terms on a two-year extension at the Emirates.

However, discussions were said to have stalled as the 27-year old assess his options going forward.

Still, the report claims the club will push ahead with plans to extend his deal past the summer of 2018, worth around £180,000 per week.

There are no suggestions that the German midfielder is particularly unhappy with life in the English capital.

Barcelona had been linked with making a move for him, despite his past with fierce La Liga rivals Real Madrid.
