Ozil hints at Arsenal future by admitting he is happy in London

Mesut Ozil has been a regular name in the transfer gossip columns over the last few months, as uncertainty continues to surround his Arsenal future.

The German World Cup winner has been in negotiations with the Gunners for a lengthy time regarding fresh terms.

Like his teammate Alexis Sanchez, Ozil has 18 months left on his current deal, and even though Olivier Giroud, Laurent Koscielny and Francis Coquelin have signed on the dotted line, the 28-year-old is yet to.

In a recent interview with Kicker Ozil, who has been named Germany’s Player of the Year for the fifth time in six years, suggested that he would be more inclined to sign a new deal if manager Arsene Wenger extended his stay at the Emirates.

The Frenchman’s current deal expires at the end of the season, and there is no indication as to whether he will be at the helm for the 2017-18 campaign.

As for Ozil, he has told the German football federation’s website that he is content with life in England, which could suggest that he has no plans to leave.

“I’ve simply arrived in the Premier League since last season. I’ve remained injury free for the most part and I feel very comfortable in London now as well.”
