Arsenal and Mesut Ozil close to agreeing £200,000-a-week deal


According to the Mirror, Mesut Ozil is close to agreeing a new £200,000-a-week deal with Arsenal. 

Ozil’s representatives held further talks with Arsenal over the international break. The German midfielder is reported to want around £200,000-a-week to stay at Arsenal, which would not only make Arsenal’s highest player but also one of the highest earners in the League. 

Ozil has 18 months left on his current £140,000-a-week contract with Arsenal and it seems both sides are eager to complete the deal. Ozil joined Arsenal just over three years ago and is currently in fantastic form this season. Furthermore, he has also just bought a new £10 million house in London. 

Ozil is not the only man in negotiations with Arsenal over a new deal, as Alexis Sanchez also has 18 months left on his current deal, albeit Arsenal are less confident of securing Sanchez’s signature.
