Arsenal had a very disappointing outing against Tottenham today and are now fourth on the Premier League log but just two points adrift of Liverpool at the top.
Away from the match today, Arsenal star Mesut Ozil is reported close to agreeing an improved deal with Arsenal after several months of talks.
Mesut Ozil is currently the highest earner at Arsenal but the report according to the Metro claims he will sign a £160,000 per week deal. Ozil currently earns £160,000 per week and the reported offer is just a marginal increase, it is difficult to believe this.
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.
