As if Arsenal fans haven’t had enough woe to contend with recently, reports emanating out of Germany suggest Mesut Ozil is stalling over signing a new deal with the club have condemned to drowning their sorrows even further.
Despite a slow start to life in England following a record breaking £42.5m move to the Gunners in 2013, Ozil has established himself as one of the best players in the Premier League.
A wonderful 18 assists from the World Cup winner have gone some way into reminding the baying public as to why he was a star at Real Madrid and commanded such a hefty sum of money.
Such is the nature of his impressive form, the playmaker had been touted as a blockbuster target for La Liga giants Barcelona at the end of the season.
After watching the North London giants fade away from title contention, the 27-year old reportedly criticised the club’s transfer policy and urged them to bring in more players this summer.
With two years left to run on his deal, there had reportedly been doubts as to whether he’d sign a new one after talks stalled in light of yet another lacklustre season.
Now, in an interview with German publication Sport-Informations Dienst, Ozil has remained coy on his future at the Emirates.
There is no hurry’, stated the midfielder.
‘I have two years left on my contract. We’ll see how it goes at the end of the season.’
Would selling Ozil be the end of Wenger? Would you blame the German for having doubts about staying?
