Arsenal star Mesut Ozil is reportedly close to agreeing to sign a new contract at the Emirates Stadium after months of talks.
The Germany international is a vital part of Arsene Wenger’s side, and is said to be edging closer to putting pen to paper on a new £160,000 per week deal.
Ozil, 28, has long been regarded as one of the best attacking midfielders in the world, and has finally started to repay that £42million that Arsenal invested to bring him in from Real Madrid in 2013.
According to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal will now be handed the timely boost of Ozil committing his future to the club with a contract running for another five years.
This would theoretically keep the playmaker in north London until the age of 33, ensuring he spends his peak years in a red and white shirt.
