Mesut Ozil will wait until the summer to sign a new contract with Arsenal but has hinted that he may finish his career in North London.
There has been speculation over Mesut Ozils future at Arsenal since the downfall of the Gunners title hopes this season. Many fans were shown outside the Emirates after a 2-1 home defeat to Swansea begging the 27 year old not to leave Arsenal.
The German International playermaker still has two years left on his contract which expires in 2018, but has grown frustrated by the lack of top quality players Wenger has bought in.
Mesut Ozil has been Arsenals stand out player this season, scoring 8 goals and creating 19 assists in 43 appearances. The German has also created the most amount of chances than any other player in Premier League history (137). But he is missing a world class striker to convert those chances.
Ozil is however, said to be relaxed about signing a new contract and told German news agency ‘there is no hurry, I have two years left on my contract. We’ll see how it goes at the end of the season’.
Some reports have suggested that Ozil may return to the Bundesliga in Turkey, where his grandfather emigrated from but he insists that he has not yet planned his future and may retire at the Emirates.
‘I’m not saying that I definetly must return to the Bundesliga or spend time in Turkey. But I’m not ruling it out either. Maybe I’ll finish my career in England’.
