German international Mesut Ozil might have spent the better part of the last two weeks in bed recovering from a throat infection, but that hasn’t stopped the Arsenal playmaker from giving an interview to German Magazine Kicker.
The good news for Arsenal fans is that the 28 year old midfielder is open to the idea of signing a new contract with the club. The mixed news though is that he wants Manager Arsene Wenger to commit his future to the Gunners first.
Ozil has shared in the interview that it isn’t talk of transfer wages that is holding up the deal, and he loves being at Arsenal, where he believes he shares a special relationship with the fans.
The only assurance that he seeks from the club is a guarantee that Arsene Wenger will be the Manager beyond the end of this season, because he loves to play for the Frenchman who has shown tremendous trust in his ability and continues to back the German superstar through thick and thin.
Considering that one would probably need a pitchfork and a tow truck to drag Wenger away from Arsenal, this is potentially great news for the Gunners and one is likely to see Ozil ink a new deal in the not too distant future.
