The Gunners have ended another season without major silverware but ended the season on a positive note with a 4-0 victory against Aston villa at the Emirates stadium to finish second on the premier league table this term.
Report from London claims Arsenal midfield Mesut Ozil is set to renew his contract after the Europe 2016 tournament.
It appears Ozil’s waiting game concerning his future at the Emirates Stadium will continue until the end of the European championship in France next month, as reported by the Squawka and the National.
The Germany international has not been forthcoming in committing his future to the club; having delayed his contract talks till the end of the season and has now affirmed that he will only decide after EURO 2016.
The 27-year-old, who still has two years left on his current contract, has been linked with a move to Juventus and Manchester United should Jose Mourinho comes in as manager at Old Trafford.
Arsenal are reportedly set to offer the midfielder a contract extension worth £200,000 per week, that would make him the first player in the club’s history to earn such wage and Wenger believes he can convince the World Cup winner to remain at the club as he aims to rebuild the team.
Replying to questions about his future at Arsenal during his visit to the Arsenal Soccer School in Dubai at the Sevens Stadium the playmaker said:
“I still have two years contract with Arsenal, as you know, and we will be in talks with club and we will see what happens in the future.”
“But as I said now I’m concentrating on EURO 2016 in France, which is very important for me and my team after the last World Cup. Then later I will see what I will do with Arsenal.”
Arsenal endured a frustrating season, were on course for the first Premier League title in 12 years during the first half of the season but fell out of the race after a string of poor results in the second half of the season, including crashing out of the Champions League and losing, as holders, to Watford in the FA Cup.
And eventually settled for the runner-up spot- ten points behind the eventual winner, Leicester City- our highest position since 2005.
Ozil led the Premier League assists with 19 and scored six goals in 35 league appearances. He joined from Real Madrid in 2013.
