Arsenal fans react as Mesut Ozil closes in on new contract with the club

That’s right Arsenal fans. Don’t pinch yourselves, it has finally happened. After what seems like an age, Mesut Ozil, or more accurately his agent, has confirmed that a new Arsenal contract is being worked on.

Speaking to the Turkish media earlier this week, Ozil’s agent Dr Erkut Sogut stated;

“Ozil wants to play another two to three years in the Premier League. Our contacts with Arsenal continue and are going in a positive way.”

Whether they want Ozil to remain at the club or not, Arsenal fans will be undoubtedly happy to hear the news that this saga is coming to a conclusion. Along with Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil’s contract situation has been hanging over the Emirates for over a year, like an unwanted dark cloud.

While the German international, who is valued at £45million by Transfermarket, close to resolving his Arsenal future, Gunners fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts…and its safe to say that they weren’t impressed…
