Mesut Ozil has signed a new three-and-a-half-year contract to remain at Arsenal until the summer of 2021.
The midfielder becomes the highest-paid player in the club’s history – earning about £350,000 a week before tax.
The deal, signed on Wednesday, follows months of speculation about the future of the 29-year-old Germany international, whose previous deal was due to expire at the end of the season.
He joined the Gunners from Real Madrid in 2013 for a then club record £42.4m.
