Arsene Wenger Speaks About Mesut Ozil's Arsenal Contract Situation

Will Arsenal and Özil negotiate an extension to keep the German at the Emirates

Will Arsenal and Özil negotiate an extension to keep the German at the Emirates

Mesut Ozil reportedly has no interest in remaining at Arsenal when his contract expires next summer and is keen to reunite with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.

Arsene Wenger admitted yesterday that negotiations over a new deal have slowed in recent weeks as the two parties struggle to agree terms leading to speculation Ozil could be on the move at the end of the season. The prospects of Ozil working with the Special One once again could be tempting, Nemanja Matic would free him off any defensive duties and could bring back the Mezut Ozil of Real Madrid if he joins the Red devils.

The 28-year-old is believed to have turned down several offers made by Arsenal and is likely to be seeking an exit.

Ozil played under the Portuguese boss whilst the pair were at Real Madrid together between 2010 and 2013. In four season at the North London club, he has played an instrumental role in their fortunes.

Merson picked just Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal in a combined Arsenal and Chelsea XI, with the Chilean has teamed up with 10 Blues players in what looks to be Merson's latest dig at Wenger. For now, Mourinho has an enviable amount of depth in his attack, especially when it comes to his playmakers, with the likes of Juan Mata and Henrikh Mkhitaryan going strong.

Arsenal's game was delayed by an hour because of crowd disturbances outside the stadium, but Wenger rested most of his regular starters and said his team had enough time to prepare.

Only in the 2015-16 season, when he finished the domestic league campaign having returned six goals and 19 assists, can Ozil said to have hit his best form in England.
