Amid speculation over the future of Arsenal star, Mesut Ozil, the German midfielder’s agent has moved to let the club’s fans know that his client will remain at the Emirates Stadium until 2021 at least.
Ozil’s agent made this declaration despite suggestions that the club could be open to letting the former Real Madrid star go if the right offer were comes Arsenal’s way.
And following a largely average season that began with a huge controversy over his international retirement and has included regular spells on the bench, Ozil has not enjoyed the best of times with the Gunners this time.
He has scored just three goals and provided six assists this campaign, which is a stark contrast to some of his much better returns in previous seasons with the Gunners.
Speaking to Turkish-Football.com, Ozil’s representative, Erkut Sogut, made it clear that the German star will reject any approaches to move on because he remains loyal to the Gunners cause.
“Rumours will always persist, there is no doubt about that,” Sokut said. “But one thing I can guarantee is Mesut’s loyalty.
“His mind is focused on Arsenal, and Arsenal only. Mesut bleeds Arsenal red, and respecting his contract is a certainty.”
He added: “He’ll be staying at Arsenal until at least 2021, and the fans need not to worry about the gossip that may come this summer. He has found a place he feels welcome and believes he has a lot more to give.”
What are your thoughts on the speculation surrounding the future of Ozil at Arsenal? Do you think he will remain with the Gunners after this season?
