There is so much uncertainty in the air over the future of Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil as the Germany international is yet to sign an extension with Arsenal.
However, Thierry Henry has told Mesut Ozil to remain at Arsenal and help the club win the trophies that will confirm him as a Gunners legend.
The Germany World Cup winner is currently locked in negotiations over a new contract and is seeking a significant pay rise on his current deal which is due to expire in the summer of 2018.
Ozil has won two FA Cups since he joined the north London club from Real Madrid in 2013 but Henry believes he is capable of inspiring his former club to greater heights, should he commit his peak years to Arsenal.
‘Mesut has won the World Cup with Germany. But at club level, he has only one title, with Real Madrid in 2012. He will be desperate for more,’ he wrote in The Sun.
‘But he can do that at the Emirates. That’s why I’d urge him to stay and become an Arsenal legend.
‘Win that first title. Be the future of Arsenal. Not just the assist man, but the guy who drives the team forward. He can do that with Alexis Sanchez.
‘They have to be at the top of their game every single match. They can be those guys. They must believe it. This Arsenal side are not far from winning the title.’
