Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are thanking their lucky stars after suggestions that a major deal has been completed by the North London side.
Spanish outlet Don Balon state Mesut Ozil has agreed a new contract with the Gunners, following Alexis Sanchez’ agreement- which is reported to have been reached last week.
The news is a huge boost for Arsenal, who have benefitted from Ozil’s fine Premier League form this season. He extended his consecutive assists record to seven matches this weekend, taking his season talk to 11.
That’s pretty exceptional given that Thierry Henry holds the record for most Premier League assists in a season with 20, which gives Ozil 25 games to secure a further nine assists to equal the record that has stood for over a decade.
Ozil, Arsenal’s record signing, is a fan favourite at the Emirates and securing his future is a major signal of intent from the Gunners, with fans having to endure years of seeing their star players sold before the FA Cup success in 2014.
Arsenal fans, has Ozil been your best player this season? How huge is this deal for you? Let us know in the comments below!
