One thing that Arsene Wenger must do to sustain this Arsenal team is to ensure that the key players are kept in the club for the foreseeable future.
Mesut Ozil is yet to sign a contract extension with Arsenal there have been conflicting reports over the reason why the German international is yet to put pen to paper.
Manager Arsene Wenger has now confirmed that Ozil will sign an extension as he believes the players wants to continue playing for us.
‘I don’t think he needs convincing,’ Wenger said. ‘He wants to stay here. If you have a good bank, call me,’ the Frenchman then joked.
Despite joking about negotiations, Wenger kept his cards close to his chest when asked if the club are close to agreeing a deal: ‘We keep that discreet. At due time we will come out with that,’ he said.
‘Am I confident he will sign? It’s not my main worry now. We want to keep our best players, of course. The more I say that, the more he is in a stronger position,’ Wenger added.
‘It’s not just money. Arsenal can win titles, of course. But that’s what we have to show.
‘We are in a league where Man City, Man United, Liverpool, Tottenham, Chelsea, everybody, fights and you cannot guarantee that to anybody.’
