Mesut Ozil will sign a new contract with Arsenal, according to the bookies!
The Mirror reported that Arsenal would make one last push to keep Ozil, 29, at the Emirates with Manchester United and Barcelona both said to be interested.
However, bookmakers Betway now make him 1/5 to extend his stay in north London by signing a deal worth £275,000-per-week before the end of the season.
Betway’s Alan Alger said: “Mesut Ozil may be able to sign a pre-contract with foreign clubs from January, but we think the Gunners will pull out all the stops to persuade the German to sign a new contract in the New Year.
“The Arsenal hierarchy are expected to offer Ozil a bumper deal worth £275,000-per-week in the coming months and he’s now heavily favoured at 1/5 to extend his stay at the Emirates before the end of the January transfer window.
“Barcelona looks Ozil’s most likely destination if he is to sign a pre-contract agreement, with the Catalan giants 8/1 to agree a deal for the 29-year-old.”
