MESUT OZIL is close to agreeing a contract extension with the Gunners, according to reports
The Germany international’s current deal is due to expire at the end of the season and he is now available to sign a pre-agreement with a foreign club.
But Ozil has remain professional and is continuously putting in impressive performances for Arsenal, despite outside interest from clubs across Europe.
The playmaker completed the full 90 minutes as the Gunners beat Chelsea 2-1 to reach the Carabao Cup final last night.
And he will now put pen to paper on a lucrative extension within the coming weeks.
According to Football.London, Arsenal are confident they can tie Ozil down for a longer period.
It is also suggested that a deal could be done soon.
Alexis Sanchez’s swap-deal to Manchester United has apparently unsettled the fanbase and the club are hoping Ozil’s extension will get them back on side.
The terms of the new deal are still unclear but it is expected the 29-year-old will receive a substantial pay rise.
