Mesut Ozil set to renew his Arsenal contract



Mesut Ozil is ready to sign a contract extension with Arsenal if reports are to be believed.

Apparently, the German will become the highest paid player at the club with wages of around €350,000 per week according to Bild (report translated by SportWitness)

Ozil is thought to be impressed with the ambition shown in the January market and he is ready to form a lethal attacking trio along with Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang.

The Dortmund striker is expected to complete his move to Arsenal later today.

Arsenal fans will be delighted with the way the club has handled the departure of Alexis Sanchez. Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan are both very good footballers. Also, the fact the Ozil is ready to commit his future to the club is an added bonus.

The report adds that Ozil is well settled in London and he is all set to marry his girlfriend Amine Gülse after the World Cup. The couple has been staying in London for a while now and they plan to continue living there.

Arsenal crashed to a defeat against Swansea last night and the Gunners will have to win most of their remaining games now in order to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
