OZIL EXPECTS ARSENAL DECISION SOON
Arsenal attacker Mesut Ozil expects to have contract talks “soon”, but insists he is happy at the Premier League club.
Ozil, 28, is out of contract in mid-2018, leading to speculation he may leave Arsenal in the off-season.
But the Germany international dismissed reports manager Arsene Wenger was already planning to be without his services.
“You think Wenger tells the journalists [about my future] before he tells me? I know him differently,” Ozil told German newspaper Welt am Sonntag.
“I have a contract until 2018 in London and I feel very comfortable there. We’ll talk soon and then make a decision.”
Arsenal face a crucial outing in their first game after the international break, hosting third-placed Manchester City on Sunday.
