Arsenal confident of signing World Cup hero to massive deal

OzilArsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are breathing a sign of relief as they sip their pints today, after it emerged that paper talk from the weekend was exactly that and it isn’t anything to worry about.

The Telegraph states Arsenal are confident that Mesut Ozil will agree to a new £180k-a-week deal to tie his future down to the North London giants.

Ozil has been a crucial asset for the Gunners Premier League title push this season, with his 17 assists setting him on-course to break the record for the most assists in a single season, and his latest contribution came with a pinpoint cross for Danny Welbeck’s dramatic winner against Leicester City yesterday.

However, reports over the weekend suggested he wants to move to Barcelona, where he has a better chance of winning the Champions League, but Arsenal have received no indication that the 27-year-old wants to leave North London.

Our landlord believes this is massive for Arsenal, as he sees Ozil as the key figure to build a successful side upon.

Arsenal fans, how crucial is Mesut Ozil? Let us know in the comments below!
